Extract from the Telegraph:
"One in ten adults is living with hardened arteries - the main cause of death in Britain - it was revealed yesterday.
The estimated cost of treating obesity and conditions linked to it - including cancer, diabetes, heart disease and strokes - has risen to well in excess of £1?billion a year. Based on body mass index and waist circumference - an indicator of the amount of abdominal fat - one in five men and one in four women are at a very high risk of health complications because of their weight, the NHS Information Centre found.
In England in 2006 there were 4,068 people who had been diagnosed as clinically obese - a fourfold rise in 10 years. However, there were a further 80,000 whose primary condition such as diabetes is caused by them being obese."
The best and safest way to reduce all these health problems is to avoid eating salt and salty food.
Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!vulnerable groups
