We are constantly reminded by health professionals that excessive intake of dietary sodium is linked to hypertension, which is one of the risk factors for the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and stroke. They further warn you that excess sodium intake is linked to gastric cancer, decreased bone density, and obesity. That's a fact.

A silent killer maneuvers just below the surface of almost all the
health issues that will lead to death and disease in the 21st century.
The U.S. population faces well-recognized health risks, including
chronic diseases, environmental degradation, and natural and manmade
disasters, but the silent killer is less diagnosed and remains
