Stomach cancer, Osteoporosis and Obesity are caused by many reasons, one of them is "excess salt"

Stomach cancer, Osteoporosis and Obesity are somehow caused by excessive salt intake

If you are taking high amount of salts, you are risking stomach cancer. Among all the stomach cancer patients, 1/4th of the seven thousand new cases are due to high salt intake.

1) H. Pylori bacteria & stomach cancer

Major risk of stomach cancer is Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacteria, which causes stomach inflammation. Stomach inflation is always a bad indicator that leads to stomach cancer or stomach ulcer.

Clinical factor of the presence of H. Pylori

Characteristically, Helicobacter pylorus (H. pylori) bacteria do not damage stomach, but stomach lining is damaged by salt that makes vulnerable effects of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacteria. The other problem of salt is its capacity to increase the growth as well as action of bacteria that cause more damage to the stomach. The risks of stomach cancers are more found among men, if compared with the women. There are many other causes of stomach cancers.

2) Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis means thinning of bones, causing brittleness in the bones that result to breakage in bones. Almost 3 million people in UK are suffering from this disease.

Statistics of Osteoporosis in UK

Every 2nd woman or every 5th men in the UK are the cases of Osteoporosis. These groups of people are above 50 in their age and are found to have broken their bones. The reason is poor conditions of their bones.

Relation between bone weakness and salt intake

In our body system, the maximum amount of calcium is stored in our bones. The high salt intake can cause excretions of the calcium from the bones to the urine. If the problem is such, a person will be the victim of calcium deficiency in bones, and the bones as the result will be weak and brittle. The brittleness in bones is ultimately a worsening condition.

Normally when we become older our bones become weaker; and a weaker bone in the old age if further weakened by Osteoporosis, the older person is sure to experience the brittleness of bones.

Drop in hormone estrogen levels in the post-menopausal period

Drop in hormone estrogen levels in the post-menopausal period is a normal phenomenon for the women. But this also causes thinning of bones. The women must take care of their bone health because of this unavoidable body system, so that they remain healthy during the reduction of hormone estrogen levels in their post-menopausal period.

So from the early of our life, if we all take care of our bone-health, we can save ourselves from dangerous problem.

3) Obesity

According to some authentic statistics, 1 in every 4 adult British is obese, while 66 of the 100 people of the same country are either overweight or obese.

Different types of health conditions are attached with obesity. An obese person may have diabetes, CHD, high blood pressure and sleep apnea.

Relation between salt and obesity

Directly salt does not cause obesity, but intake of salt makes a person thirsty. Thirst makes a person drink sweet fluids, which are responsible for obesity. All categories of people fall victim of this problem.
