Higher risk of osteoporosis
The more salt you eat, the more calcium your body loses through urination. And unfortunately, if you don't have enough calcium in your diet, the body will take it from your bones, increasing the risk for bone problems like osteoporosis.
Increases water retention
If you eat too much salt, your kidneys may not be a le to filter excess sodium from your bloodstream. Sodium builds up in your system and your body holds onto extra water in an attempt to dilute the sodium. This can cause water retention and bloating.
May increase risk for stomach cancer.
There's also evidence suggesting that a high salt diet increases the risk for stomach cancer, according to a study published in 2014 in the journal cancer treatment and research and earlier research published in the british journal of cancer.
Damages cardiovascular health
Excess water in your body can put added pressure on your heart and blood vessels, triggering high blood pressure.
This is a leading cause of heart attack and stroke. The risk for heart disease is higher when a high sodium diet is accomplished by a low potassium diet.
