Subject Keywords: Dietary salt intake
Topic: Obesity
Chronic Conditions
Obesity
Type: Report
Region: Republic of Ireland
Description:

Dietary salt intakes are well in excess of nutritional requirements in most countries worldwide. There is now an overwhelming scientific consensus, based on observational studies and clinical trials over the past 40 years, that salt intake in excess of physiological requirements plays a critical causal role in the rise in blood pressure with age and the development of essential hypertension.
 
 
In 2007 safefood commissioned this study to accurately assess dietary salt intake in the Irish population and its association with relevant lifestyle-related risk factors. The research project was led by Professor Ivan Perry and Dr Gemma Browne, working with a research team in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, UCC and the Health Research Board (HRB) Centre for Health and Diet Research.
