Expatriate international health insurance customers may wish to monitor their intake of salt, following the advice of one expert.
Hannah Brinsden, a nutritionist for Consensus Action on Salt and Health, said that minimising the amount of this mineral ingested is good for people "at any age".
She claimed that doing so lessens an individual's chances of having a heart attack or a stroke and reduces levels of stomach cancer and osteoporosis.
The food industry should be compelled to produce more low-salt products, the expert argued.
Ms Brinsden advised people to read the nutritional information on their purchases, adding: "We should all eat less than six grams of salt a day – about a teaspoon."
Although a review found that moderately cutting salt intake does not appear to alter a person's chances of getting cardiovascular disease, it did agree with Ms Brisden that blood pressure is lowered.
Lead author of the study Professor Rod Taylor, of the Peninsula College of Medicine at the University of Exeter, stated that more significant reductions in consumption could have made a more dramatic difference.
