High Blood Pressure in Kids!
Shocking news today has revealed that hospital admissions in the UK for children under 16 with high blood pressure has trebled in the last 10 years! Almost 400 of these children were under the age of 5! It has not been confirmed whether the admissions were caused by too much salt in the diet or childhood obesity, or if it was linked to certain heart or kidney conditions. However other research has shown that almost 50% of children aged 7 consume too much salt. A study by the University of Bristol has shown that out of 6000 children, those who consumed more than the recommended salt intake had high blood pressure at the age of 7, 9 and 15. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-3142397/The-16s-battling-high-blood-pressure-Admissions-treble-ten-years-amid-concerns-eating-salt.html
