Awareness walk with slogan “Say No to Salt”

WHO recommends salt consumption of 2000 mg per day which makes less than half a tea spoon. Nutrition Society, TUF arranged a walk to raise awareness of the risk of increased salt consumption. Prof Dr Faqir Hussain, Dean Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences along with other faculty members led the walk. Students were holding the banners and display cards bearing the messages regarding the damaging effects of too much salt.
Addressing the students Prof Dr Faqir Hussain said, excessive consumption of salt in our diet can damage the heart, aorta, and kidneys without increasing blood pressure, and that it may be bad for bones, too.
