In June 2011 the British Hypertension Society issued a statement supporting the implementation of national and global programmes of moderate reduction in salt intake. The Society has published a new statement  (August 2016) in light of more recent publications. The evidence supporting global actions for a moderate reduction in salt consumption to prevent cardiovascular disease is strong and such studies should not overturn the concerted public health action to reduce salt intake globally.
