How might this impact on clinical practice?
Clinicians should shift focus away from salt and focus greater attention to the likely more-consequential food additive: sugar.
A reduction in the intake of added sugars, particularly fructose, and specifically in the quantities and context of industrially-manufactured consumables, would help not only curb hypertension rates, but might also help address broader problems related to cardiometabolic disease.
