Live Heart Healthy. Live Well & Live Long

Want to live a long, healthy life?

Then put down the salt shaker.

In Salt: Black America’s Silent Killer, cardiac surgeon Surender R. Neravetla reveals that basic table salt—along with all that hidden sodium in processed foods—is decimating the Black American population.

This culinary go-to staple kills more Black Americans than all other diseases combined. It also triggers a host of debilitating conditions including:

  • Cardiovascular diseaseBlack Americans salt cover
  • Strokes
  • Asthma
  • Osteoporosis
  • Obesity
  • Kidney disease
  • Stomach cancer
  • Dementia

That’s right. Salt.

These salt-related diseases hit at far younger ages.

Black Americans’ salt-related health challenges are usually two to six times more acute.

Those facts prompted prompted one of America’s top surgeons—Dr. Neravetla, Director of Cardiac Surgery at Springfield Regional Medical Center and author of Salt Kills (Health Now Books LLC, 2012)—to write the first and only book about just how dangerous eating salt is for the Black American community.
