India national salt reduction campaign targets blood pressure, heart disease, stroke

Hypertension is the most important and poorly controlled risk factor for heart disease, according to presentations at the Annual Conference of the Cardiological Society of India (CSI).

It is estimated that hypertension in India will rise from 140 million people in 2008 to nearly 215 million by 2030 with increased risk of premature heart attacks, strokes and kidney disease. A national salt reduction programme in India is set to target reductions in blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.
