10g

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - NEWS -

That’s how much salt the av­er­age Aussie man con­sumes per day, which is dou­ble the max­i­mum safe in­take of 5g that’s rec­om­mended by the World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion. Aussie women aren’t much bet­ter at 7.3g per day. Ex­cess salt is linked to high blood pres­sure, so try us­ing herbs or fat­burn­ing chilli in­stead.
