POTASSIUM & SODIUM

People consuming the most potassium were 35% less likely to die from coronary heart disease

The one-fifth of people consuming the most potassium were 35% less likely to die from coronary heart disease than the one-fifth of people consuming the least.

The top one-fifth consumed an average of 3363 mg of potassium per day versus 1720 mg per day for the bottom one-fifth.

The one-fifth of people consuming the most sodium versus the one-fifth consuming the least were:
  • 42 percent more likely to have cardiovascular disease

  • 55 percent more likely to have a stroke of any kind

  • 104 percent more likely to have an ischemic stroke (2X as likely).

The top one-fifth consumed 6523 mg of sodium per day versus 2322 mg per day for the bottom one-fifth. Read the entire article | Email this article
