मान्य स्तर से ज्यादा नमक खाते हैं भारतीय. INDIANS USE MORE SALT IN FOOD

More Salt Risk To BP Patients
नई दिल्ली। भारतीय अपने खाने में विश्व स्वास्थ्य संगठन (डब्ल्यूएचओ) द्वारा तय की गई मात्रा का दोगुना नमक लेते हैं। ज्यादा नमक खाने से हृदय रोग का खतरा बढ़ता है और समय से पहले मौत होने लगी है।

जार्ज संस्थान की ओर से किए गए अध्ययन में कहा गया है कि 19 वर्ष से अधिक उम्र के लोग रोजाना 10.98 ग्राम नमक खाते हैं। डब्ल्यूएचओ ने रोजाना पांच ग्राम नमक के सेवन को ही उचित माना है।

अध्ययन में कहा गया है कि देश के दक्षिणी और पूर्वी हिस्से के लोग नमक का सबसे ज्यादा इस्तेमाल करते हैं। त्रिपुरा में लोग रोजाना 14 ग्राम नमक खाते हैं। यह डब्ल्यूएचओ द्वारा तय मात्रा का तीन गुना है।

अध्ययन करने वाले दल के प्रमुख क्लेरे जान्सन ने कहा, "पिछले 30 वर्षों के दौरान खानपान में बदलाव आया है। लोगों ने दाल, फल और सब्जियां खाना कम कर दिया है और प्रसंस्कृत और फास्ट फूड ज्यादा ले रहे हैं।

इसका परिणाम यह है कि उनका भोजन अब नमक, शर्करा (चीनी) और नुकसानदेह वसा से भरा है। इस तरह के खाने से उच्च रक्तचाप, मोटापा और हर्ट अटैक एवं दिल का दौरा में तेजी आ गई है।"

नमक बढ़ाता है रक्तचाप

उच्च रक्तचाप में नमक सबसे बड़ी भूमिका निभाता है। रक्तचाप बढ़ने से हृदय रोग का खतरा बढ़ जाता है। देश में हर साल करीब 23 लाख लोग हृदय रोग के कारण मौत के शिकार होते हैं।

Indians consume over twice the salt recommended: Study

Indians are consuming more than double the recommended amount of salt by WHO in their diets, thus putting themselves at increased risk of cardiovascular diseases and early deaths, a study claimed today.

The study conducted by George Institute for Global Health said the average daily salt intake of Indians above 19 years, was found to be 10.98 grams against the WHO recommendation of 5 grams per day.

It said the salt consumption was higher in southern and eastern states of India.

Tripura topped the list with an average daily salt intake of around 14 grams, almost three times the recommendation by World Health Organisation (WHO).

“Over the past 30 years, the average Indian diet has been transformed. The Indians are eating less pulses, fruits and vegetables and more processed and fast food.

“As a result, their diets are now full of salt, sugar and harmful fats which are driving up rates of high blood pressure, obesity and cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes,” Claire Johnson, lead author of the study said.

With salt being a major contributing factor to high blood pressure, a leading cause of cardiovascular disease (CVD), the study highlights the need for urgent action to reduce salt consumption in the country.

The study found that there was no difference in salt consumption between urban and rural areas, while it emphasised that urban population eat less processed foods, but they consume more salted pickled products.

CVD is the leading cause of mortality in India leading to some 2.3 million deaths each year, a quarter of which are attributed to high blood pressure, the WHO said.

By 2030, the number of people suffering from high blood pressure in India is set to nearly double to 213 million.

“The scale of the crisis facing India is hard to contemplate. We are talking about millions of people dying each year due to unhealthy diets and lifestyles,” said Johnson.

The George Institute for Global Health is at present working with the Centre for Chronic Disease Control (CCDC) and develop the evidence for a national salt reduction program.

Vivek Jha, Executive Director of the institute, said India has to ramp up its efforts to meet the WHO target of a 30 per cent reduction in salt consumption by 2025.

“We need a country wide educational program teaching people what to eat and how to reduce salt in their diets. It can be done but it needs investment. It needs to be made a priority given the rising levels of CVD and high blood pressure cases in India.

“We also need to work with the food industry and encourage them to reduce salt levels in processed foods,” he said.

Mahatma Gandhi Adopted Feroze Khan For Indira Marriage & Gave "Gandhi" Surname

Mahatma Gandhi Given His Surname To Indra as "Gandhi" Nehru-Khan-Gandhi Dynasty : Jawaharlal Nehru was the first prime minister of modern India, and he ruled the country from 1947 to 1964.  He was born on 14th November 1889, to Motilal and Swarup Rani Nehru.  The family belonged to a Kashmiri Brahmin tribe called ‘ Pandit.’   Indira Gandhi, daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru, became prime minister of India in 1966. Mrs. Gandhi was born on November 19, 1917 to Jawaharlal and Kamala Nehru.  She was named Indira Priyadarshini Nehru. She fell in love and decided to marry Feroze Khan, a family friend. Feroze Khan’s father, Nawab Khan, was a Muslim, and mother was a Persian Muslim.  Jawaharlal Nehru did not approve of the inter-caste marriage for political reasons (see  http://www.asiasource.org/ society/indiragandhi.cfm ).  If Indira Nehru were to marry a Muslim she would loose the possibility of becoming the heir to the future Nehru dynasty.  At this juncture, a
