Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Publicity surrounding the salt and hypertension debate evoked fear in workers at a Salt Mine that their working conditions may lead to high blood pressure. A cross-sectional study was carried out to investigate the blood pressure levels of these workers. The blood pressure levels were found not to be raised in comparison with those of a similar group of workers not occupationally exposed to salt.
