The hypothesis that salted food can cause hypertension must be tested prospectively to see if unsalted food protects non-hypertensive persons. The first of two feasibility studies has confirmed that established hypertension can show spontaneous remission on unsalted food. We now report the preliminary findings of a second feasibility study to test whether a clinic for hypertension can attract self-referred non-hypertensive people interested in preventing hypertension by changing their diet. A total of 874 applicants have attended at least one pre-entry visit. We report data from the first 176 participants who completed the feasibility study lasting 12 weeks. Of these 110 were non-hypertensive people and 93 (84.5%) would be prepared to remain on unsalted food for five years.
