Water, they say, is the most neglected nutrient. Salt? Well, isn’t it the most used nutrient in the daily dose of culinary preparations? Professionals and aficionados of medicine say, excess intake of salt leads to hypertension and substitute sugar in the place of salt, you will end up being diabetic. But our question here is, can the sore throated social animal ever feel their meal sumptuous, should they find a dearth of the aforementioned foods? Hands on hearts, will we really dare to think about the indulgence of ingredients when a dish of sublime culinarism is put before us, and our appetite whets? Our objective, in this study, was to understand the role and importance of dietary salt intake in increasing and decreasing the incidence of non-communicable diseases, precisely, hypertension.
