American Heart Association says Institute of Medicine (IOM) report an incomplete review of Sodium’s Impact
Dallas, TX – The American Heart Association says a new report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) — Sodium Intake in Populations: Assessment of Evidence — is incomplete in its assessment of sodium’s impact on health because it does not focus its examinations on scientific evidence that links excess consumption and high blood pressure.
The report found that though reducing sodium intakes from current levels is important, and that there is a positive relationship between higher levels of sodium intake and risk of heart disease, there is not enough evidence to conclude that sodium reduction below 2,300 mg daily leads to less heart disease, stroke and a reduced risk of death.
