Some Dangers of Salt

Blood pressure

Blood pressure measures the force that blood pushes and moves against blood vessels. This is important so that the body has a sufficient supply of oxygen and energy needed for life. For this to be effective the blood pressure has to be as normal as possible. Eating too much salt causes a raise in blood pressure, because the excess salt causes a strain to the arteries trying to pump the blood through the arteries to the major organs. This constant strain on the arteries can lead to them becoming busted, or becoming clogged up. This can eventually lead to the organs becoming damaged, which could be fatal for the body.

Kidneys

The kidneys are a major organ in our bodies flushing out unwanted fluid through urine, when we go to the toilet. This process is done by extracting the fluid from our blood. Eating excess salt causes the amount of salt to stay in the blood stream. This can make life difficult for the kidneys to remove the salt from the blood stream. This can cause a strain on the kidneys, causing the body to retain the extra fluid. This can eventually lead to kidney damage,

Stroke

A raised blood pressure could also cause a problem for the brain as well, due to the possible lack of oxygen passing from the arteries leading to the brain. This could lead to stroke, resulting in possible dementia. This is due to the arteries becoming damaged, or busted due to the lack of oxygen going to the brain.

Osteoporosis

The Kidneys also support the body by helping to ensure enough Vitamin D absorbs calcium. This is important as calcium and vitamin D produce strong bones and teeth in the body. However salt can affect this, by salt being absorbed in the urine, this can weaken the bones, which can lead to osteoporosis.
