shown that reducing sodium has a direct affect on lowering high blood pressure. But does this dietary intervention have a similar affect on cardiovascular disease risk? In a randomized trial of men and women ages 30-54 with prehypertension, risk of total cardiovascular disease or death was reduced by 26 percent among those who followed a reduced sodium diet. The Trials of Hypertension (TOHP) follow-up study evaluated patient outcomes 9-14 years following the dietary interventions. Scientists conclude that a higher average intake of sodium may be associated with increased risk of cardiovascular events. Available spokesperson: Jeffrey Cutler, M.D, NHLBI. Presenter: Nancy Cook, ScD, Brigham and Women's Hospital. To interview Dr. Cook, contact Lori Shanks at (617) 534-1604.
