I found the article, Salt in Kids’ Diets Linked to High Blood Pressure sad and very alarming. Our children today are developing the obesity related disease that were once thought to only affect adults. And, the research shows that the risks of these disease linger into adulthood. This is the future of America. WE CAN CHANGE THIS! Obesity in children and adults is preventable and reversible. There is a solution. Studies show that hypnosis for weight loss can more than double the effects of traditional weight loss approaches. Self hypnosis is easy to learn and easy to use. Children are naturals at hypnosis and it only makes sense that self hypnosis should be a major component of every child’s education.
Salt in Kids’ Diets Linked to
High Blood Pressure
WebMD Health News, September 17, 2012: Eating a diet that’s high in sodium has been linked in numerous studies to higher blood pressure in adults. Now, new research from the CDC suggests the same link in kids and teens.
The investigation found that the more sodium children and teenagers ate, the higher their risk for developing high blood pressure, especially if they were overweight or obese. Average sodium intake among the children and teens was as high as that of adults. Most sodium is found in processed or packaged foods and restaurant food, not from salt.
The average daily intake of sodium among the children and teens in the study was 3,400 mg, the equivalent of just under 2 teaspoons of salt. That is more than double the daily maximum of 1,500 mg of sodium that the American Heart Association has set as a goal for both children and adults.
We clearly need to reduce sodium intake at the population level. We can do this by eating more fruits and vegetables and less processed foods.
Overweight and obese kids and teens who ate the most sodium were 3.5 times as likely to have high blood pressure as overweight and obese kids and teens who ate the least sodium.
Foods that you would never think of, such as breads and many breakfast cereals, are very high in salt.
