( marty ) you may think you're one of the lucky ones who can eat unlimited bags of chips and other salty foods and it doesn't affect your blood pressure. but according to heart experts too much salt can adversely affect you in ways you may not have thought of. (ááá2 shotááá) our health expert, karen owoc, is here to explain the dangers. blood vessels: studies show elevated sodium levels can cause the inner lining of

blood vessels (called the endothelium) to malfunction which cause the following to occur:inflammation may cause plaque inside blood vessels to crack, rupture, and dislodge from arterial walls. the body responds like with any other injury by causing blood to clot. clots clog up vessel freeways and block blood flow to the heart (heart attack) or brain (stroke).heart: research found that elevated sodium levels may increase the wall thickness of the heart's main pumping chamber. this thickening can lead to multiple heart-related
9:49 am
problems, such as:high blood pressure is a major risk factor for this muscle tissue enlargement.kidneys: healthy kidneys remove extra fluid and waste from the blood. studies found that a high sodium intake can lead to decreased rates of filtration (a sign of chronic kidney disease).brain: eating excess salt causes the brain to over-react to stressful situations and the nervous system pumps out chronically high levels of stress hormones. sodium limits sodium limits the bottom line keep sodium intake to these keep sodium the bottom line sodium limits sodium limits the bottom line
9:50 am
keep sodium intake to these recommended amounts:?19 to 49 years old: 1,500 mg sodium (2/3 teaspoon table salt)?50 to 69 years old: 1,300 mg sodium (just over 1/2 teaspoon salt)?70+ years old: 1,200 mg sodium (1/2 teaspoon salt)77% of sodium in american diets comes from processed foods - not the salt shaker. americans get most of their sodium from foods that aren't typically thought of as being salty, e.g., breads and cereals.if you do eat processed foods, read nutrition labels.calories and mg of sodium should be near equal. for example, if a product contains 200 calories, then the sodium content should not exceed 200 mg.

remember the four heart attack triggers - known as the "four e's":1. exertion2. exposure to cold3. emotion4. eating - studies have shown a heavy meal can trigger a heart attack within 26 hours. a high-salt meal can significantly impair blood flow within 30 minutes to one hour after eating it.eat mostly "real food" (unsalted and fresh).use spices, herbs, and flavored vinegars to season food.read nutrition labels.go easy on condiments
9:52 am
(soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, salad dressings, ketchup, seasoned salts, pickles, olives), and msg. baking soda, baking powder contain sodium, so baked goods are usually sources of hidden salt.speak up when dining out. ask to have your food prepared with less salt. use squeezes of lemon or lime to add flavor to your food
