1. There is only one known environmental factor that possibly could hold the key to much of the problem of 'essential' hypertension and this is salt. Without a high or moderately high salt intake, other environmental factors may be largely inoperative. The evidence, which still falls somewhat short of certainty, is briefly reviewed.
