Too much salt might turn your bones into Swiss cheese

3AW BREAKFAST

High-salt diets may corrode holes in your bones, leaving them looking like Swiss cheese.

That’s the early finding from the latest research, and it’s bad news for 3AW Breakfast’s Kate Stevenson, who can’t get enough of salty foods.

Andrew Murphy from the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute told Kate and Quarters it’s a “troubling” discovery.

“There’s a network of bone within your bone, and that gets eaten away (by eating too much salt),” Prof Murphy said.

Prof Murphy said lowering your salt intake can reverse the process.

Quarters said it’s… food for thought.
