A high salt intake increases the risk of stomach cancer
Salt and foods that are high in salt increase the risk of stomach cancer.
A high concentration of salt acts like a corrosive and damages the gastric mucosa.
In addition, salt causes the contents of the stomach to be emptied more slowly, meaning that the mucous membrane is exposed to the salt for longer. The stomach wall also becomes more vulnerable to carcinogenic substances.
You should therefore reduce the salt in your diet and limit your salt intake to a maximum of 6 grams per day. You can cut down your salt intake by cooking with fresh products and not eating salty and preserved products too often.
