One more reason to cut salt!

Posted Apr 29 2010 3:46am

In a report published in the British Journal of Nutrition, switching over to lower sodium food products may do more than just lower blood pressure it may also benefit bone health by reducing calcium loss.

The researchers stated that this additional benefit may be the result of a decrease in urinary calcium excretion when on the lower sodium DASH diet.

The subjects salt reduction seems to have long term effects on bone health but  more research is needed to confirm the lifetime benefits of a DASH- type diet.
