Want to live a long, healthy life?

Then stay far away from salt. It’ll kill you.

Salt? That’s right. Salt.

In Salt Kills, cardiac surgeon Surender R. Neravetla reveals that basic table salt—along with all that hidden sodium in processed foods—is endangering your health and putting you at risk for a host of diseases.

We have all grown accustomed to salting our food without realizing how dangerous that seemingly simple act can be. It’s time for a reality check. Salt is permanently disabling or prematurely killing millions and millions of people every year.

These shocking statistics prompted  Dr. Neravetla, recognized as one of America’s top surgeons, to write his book Salt Kills (Health Now Books LLC, 2012). In Salt Kills, Dr. Neravetla explains in easy-to-understand language how disabling—and even lethal—salt is for so many of us.

The Salt Toll

How many of the following diseases do you think eating salt causes or contributes to?

  • High blood pressureSalt-Kills-cover
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Asthma
  • Stomach cancer
  • Dementia

The answer: All of them.

The Doctor's Wake-Up Call

Heart surgeon Surender R. Neravetla first realized that salt might be more problematic than originally thought when he returned to India, his homeland, to find that all his family members his age or older had heart problems, diabetes, high blood pressure. This despite their vegetarian diets.         

Clearly animal fat wasn’t causing heart disease among the members of his extended family or any of their many other health problems. So Dr. Neravetla, who calls himself a health news junky, dove into the research to figure out what was. That’s when he uncovered the direct connection between salt and a host of debilitating diseases that many physicians don’t even know about.  

Public Health Enemy #1

The evidence is overwhelming. Salt has become Public Health Enemy #1. Luckily, the problem doesn’t have to be terminal because the solution is simple. As Salt Kills explains, you can kick the salt habit and improve not only your longevity, but also your health and wellness and your overall well-being.

Heart health is a choice.

The choice is simple, easy and free.

All you have to do is cut down—or better yet cut out—

salt consumption.
