[Comment] Action on Salt China

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of death and disability, about 80% of which occurs in developing countries.1 Raised blood pressure from as low as 115/75 mm Hg is a risk factor for CVD. Excessive salt consumption is the leading cause of raised blood pressure.2 Salt intake among adults in most countries is about 10 g/day.3 WHO has recommended a 30% reduction by 2025 with a long-term target of less than 5 g/day. Many governments in high-income countries have started implementing action plans predominately by setting salt reduction targets for processed food.
