Over-consumption of salt (sodium) can lead to high blood pressure which in turn leads to an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. The average sodium intake per day is 2,400mg, however, the National Health and Medical Research Centre's (NHMRC) advises that Australian adults should aim to consume no more than 1,600mg in order to prevent chronic disease, while 460-920mg is an adequate adult intake for good health.
