In a nutshell: This study examined an Australian programme of incentives for the moderate reduction of salt in processed foods, a government mandate for moderate salt limits and dietary advice given to those with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The study found that mandatory and voluntary reductions in the salt content of processed food were cost-saving interventions,and even greater health benefits could be achieved with government legislation. Dietary advice was not found to be as cost-effective.
