Dr. Irina Yuzub, a Russian nutrition expert, warned of the harmful effects of excessive salt intake.

The expert points out that excess salt in the body can lead to kidney disease.

She says: “When salt levels rise in the body, the kidneys have to work hard to get rid of it. That is, the load on the kidneys increases, which can lead to damage, and if left untreated, to chronic kidney disease.

And he adds: Increasing the amount of salt in the body affects the blood vessels and heart and increases blood pressure. But controlling the amount of salt is not easy, because it is found in bread, jams, sauces and convenience foods.

The doctor suggests giving up salt for 3-5 days, and the person will feel different signals of taste buds.

At the same time, this indicates that the complete rejection of salt consumption threatens the body with an imbalance in the work of the heart, blood vessels, urinary system, and nervous system.
