After the demonstration of a positive correlation between sodium intake and arterial pressure in large population studies, the effect of short-term reduction in sodium intake demonstrated the efficacy of this nonpharmacologic therapy. In addition, a positive relation between urinary sodium (the most reliable estimate of salt intake) and left ventricular hypertrophy was found; and in recent years it was shown that cardiovascular morbidity clearly progressed with increasing sodium intake, despite one contradictory study. The role of non-pressure-related effects of dietary sodium is discussed in order to bring more arguments for a large-scale attempt to reduce sodium intake by 30% to 50%.
