With these alarming figures, it helps to know that researchers found that reducing salt intake by three grams per day can lower blood pressure, which in turn can help reduce the occurrence of these conditions. Currently, people from the U.K. consume between nine and 12 grams of salt per day. Since it has been proven that too much sodium can cause hypertension (high blood pressure) – which is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease – it was recommended that salt consumption be reduced to six grams or less per day.

(Reuters Health) - Heart disease death rates vary substantially at Veterans Affairs hospitals nationwide, and a new study suggests that this holds true not just for hospitalized patients but also for outpatients. Previous research has long documented differences in death rates at hospitals across the U.S., not just at VA facilities, often focusing on deaths among hospitalized patients or within a month after discharge. The current study, however, offers fresh insight by looking at combined mortality rates for inpatient and outpatient care. Researchers studied 930,079 veterans with heart disease and 348,015 with congestive heart failure who received care at 138 VA health systems nationwide from 2010 to 2014. At the various locations, annual death rates for heart disease ranged from a low of 5.5 percent to a high of 9.4 percent, while mortality rates for congestive heart failure ranged from 11.1 percent to 18.9 percent, researchers calculated. “The quality of care for chronic … [Read more...] about VA health systems vary widely in heart disease death rates
