March is National Nutrition Month, and brings with it a growing awareness of the importance of a healthy, nutritious diet. When it comes to the foods and drinks we put into our bodies, moderation is key. Too much of anything, like too much sugar, too much fat, or too much sodium, can negatively impact the body by increasing risk for high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and more.
In this Life Line Screening video, we explore a new study from the University of Miami School of Medicine that put the well-known issue of too-much salt intake to the test. View the video to discover the results of the study and find out why they might matter to you and your health.

Half-Minute Health-Helpers: The Risks of High Salt Intake
Here is the audio text to the video:
“Most people already know that high levels of salt are not good for the human body and normally lead to a higher blood pressure over time. Now a new study led by the University of Miami School of Medicine seems to support the claim that there is a strong link between high salt intake and conditions such as heart disease and stroke – not just high blood pressure.
And just like sugar, hidden salt is everywhere, so read your labels to keep salt off your tables.”
