If you don't exercise that knock your age off by many years , and you prefer having salty meals that reduce your life because salt affect negatively on blood circulation . On the other hand , many studies show that coffee reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease so becareful to be home by teatime to have your tea and coffee and that sure will save you .

I think you will find it's the fried fish and chips that is doing more damage than the salt.

Chukcha Aye

21.07.22 в 13:50

Nope salt is integral and most people get headaches and get sick because they get depleted from salt. Like too much of anything it can be bad, 2-6 grams a day depending on what you have done and sweated etc can be fine.

More misinformation from the BBC, Salt is an essential mineral. Consume organic sea salt or himalayan salt. As long as you are eating all the other essential wholefoods and not eating processed, sugary, carbohydrate laden crap, research says you won't get ill and will live to a ripe old age. Do your research and don't watch the BBC. Go Alex Belfield.......................

I hope the invited person won't be offended if I tell him, "Come for tea tonight..." meaning literally a cup of tea with some cakes instead of a big evening meal...hehehe
Don't you think he will hate me after that?

Basim Alhasan

13.07.22 в 16:43

What about bloody as adverb. I imagine that similar to deadly. Is everybody agree with me?
Thank you BBC learning English. You are the best forever
