Description:

The Public Health Agency (PHA) is urging people to keep a close eye on their salt intake during National Salt Awareness Week, which runs from Monday 21 to Sunday 27 March.The theme for this yearÂ's National Salt Awareness Week is Â'Salt and menÂ's healthÂ'. Research shows that men eat more salt than women and on average have a higher blood pressure than women, particularly at a younger age. Men are also less likely to have their blood pressure checked or to take action to reduce it when it is raised.
