Major Source of Salt
Campaigners say it is
important for people to cut the amount of salt they
eat in their diet.
Too much salt
is linked to high blood pressure, which is turn can
increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
watchdog the Food Standards Agency announced targets
for reducing salt in a range of food products in
Why do we
Salt is a commonly occuring mineral, the technical
name of which is sodium chloride. It is the sodium
part of salt that is important. The body needs a
certain amount of sodium to function properly.
Sodium helps to maintain the concentration of body
fluids at correct levels. It also plays a central
role in the transmission of electrical impulses in
the nerves, and helps cells to take up nutrients.
Why is too much salt bad?
In adults, when levels of sodium are too high, the
body retains too much water and the volume of bodily
Many scientists, although not all, believe this
process is linked to high blood pressure, or
hypertension, which in turn is linked to a greater
risk of coronary heart disease and stroke.
With high levels of fluid circulating through the
brain there is a greater chance that weaknesses in
the brain's blood vessels are exposed, and that they
may burst, causing a stroke.
Similarly, a greater volume of fluid passing through
the heart can place additional strain on the organ,
increasing the possibility of coronary disease.
However, there are many potential causes of
hypertension and coronary heart disease, and some
scientists deny that salt plays any significant role
at all. An adult will be able to remove salt from
the body through the kidneys into the urine.
However, very young babies do not have the capacity
to process large quantities of salt as the kidneys
are not yet developed.
If they are given adult food with a higher salt
content before they are at least four months old,
excess sodium can accumulate in the body, causing
kidney, liver and brain damage, and in very
occasional cases, death.
It is recommended that babies are given only milk,
whether breast or formula, for the first four months
Baby foods are supposed to contain lower levels of
salt, and it is recommended that if adult foods are
to be given, unprocessed foods should be used, and
no salt added.
How much salt should we eat?The government
recommends that adults should eat 6g of salt a day.
However, the average intake of salt is between 9g
and 10g a day. Experts estimate that if average
consumption was cut to 6g a day it would prevent
70,000 heart attacks and strokes a year.
The main sources of salt in the diet are processed
foods and salt added during cooking or at the table.
Meat and meat products, and bread can also be high
Processed foods are thought to account for around
75% of the average person's salt intake. However,
research published in The Lancet medical journal
suggested that most people could not tell the
difference between loaves with markedly different
Salt is added to processed foods to aid preservation
and to improve taste. Sodium is present in additives
such as monosodium glutamate and sodium bicarbonate.
Small amounts of sodium can be found naturally in
some foods such as eggs and fish. The salt we
sprinkle on our food from cellar accounts for only
10%-15% of our intake.
What should we do?
Dr Wynnie Chan, a nutrition scientist for the
British Nurtrition Foundation, says that everybody
should look to reduce the amount of salt in their
"It would have a significant effect on those people
who need to reduce their salt levels because they
are susceptible to hypertension, but it would also
do no harm for the whole population to reduce its
salt intake," she said.
Dr Chan said there were four main ways to reduce
adding table salt to food once it is served
items with a reduced sodium content
monitor the salt content of processed food
fruit and vegetables - they contain potassium
which balances the effect of salt on the body
labels can be confusing as they often give the
sodium, rather than the salt content of food. To
calculate the amount of salt in a product, multiply
the sodium content by two-and-a-half times.

Record spin for newfound asteroid
The fastest spinning natural object
in the Solar System has been discovered by a British amateur
The compact stony asteroid 2008 HJ -
completes a full rotation once every 42.7 seconds, according
to its discoverer Richard Miles.
That measurement smashes the previous record held by the
asteroid 2000 DO8, which spins once every 78 seconds. The
new finding was made by the amateur astronomer while
operating the Faulkes Telescope South in Australia.
2008 HJ is estimated to be some 12m by 24m in size - smaller
than a tennis court. Yet it probably has a mass in excess of
5,000 tonnes. It was moving at almost 162,000km/h (100,000
mph) when it hurtled past the Earth in late April. Despite
being classified as a "near-Earth asteroid", it came no
closer than one million km and never posed a threat to our
But the discovery adds to astronomers' sparse understanding
of very small asteroids in near-Earth orbits.
Dr Petr Pravec, an astronomer at the Ondrejov Observatory in
the Czech Republic, and an expert in the field, commented:
"A period of 42.7 seconds for an asteroid with a size of
about 20 meters is perfectly consistent with theory.
"There may be a significant population of asteroids
measuring up to a few tens of metres across, rotating in
less than a minute, that have not been observed until now."
Mr Miles made the discovery while operating the Australian
telescope remotely, via the internet, from his home in
Stopping it Now:
Seas to Rise 4 Inches or More this Century
Earth gets warmer, large regions will experience heavier
rain and snowfall as weather becomes generally more intense,
according to a new study. "The models show most areas around
the world will experience more intense precipitation for a
given storm during this century," said lead researcher
Gerald Meehl of the National Center for Atmospheric Research
A warmer world will also mean a wetter one.
"On average the global precipitation increases in a warmer
climate," Meehl told LiveScience.
The increase in rain and snow will be on average about
10-20 percent, Meehl said. The more intense storms will most
likely happen in late autumn, winter, and early spring. The
largest increase in precipitation will occur over land in
the tropics where the atmosphere is warming quickest.
Based on computer models, Meehl and his colleagues expect
that the regions most likely to experience the more intense
storms are places where large masses of moist air converge.
These regions include northwestern and northeastern North
America, northern Europe, northern Asia, the east coast of
Asia, southwestern Australia and the south-central regions
of South America.
The reason for the increase in storm intensity is that as
the planet warms, the temperatures of the atmosphere and of
the ocean surface go up as well, leading to increased
evaporation and an increased capacity for the air to hold
moisture. As this soggy air moves from ocean to land, the
storms that form are heavier with rain or snow.
Even as some regions of the planet experience more intense
storms, others will suffer a greater risk of drought during
warmer months, the study concluded.
"As the climate gets warmer, we're going to feel these
effects more and more strongly," Meehl said.
Separate research recently found that
hurricanes are getting stronger but are occurring less
frequently, likely due to warmer ocean temperatures.
In another recent
study, NCAR researcher Jeffrey Yin used computer climate
simulations to show that large-scale rain and snow storms
known as frontal storms are moving polewards, driven also by
Meehl's study suggests that the planet will continue to see
increased precipitation for several more decades, regardless
of any changes humans make now. "Even if you could stabilize
greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at present
day levels, the system has a certain amount of thermal
inertia and would take several more decades to stabilize,"
Meehl said. "You'd have to really decrease the rate that
you're putting stuff in the atmosphere to get the
concentrations to level out and that'll probably be fairly
That analysis is in line with other
studies that indicate there is
no way to stop the planet from growing warmer through
The study was published in a recent issue of the journal
Geophysical Research Letters.

Is It Wise to Follow the Crowd?
Folks, hope you are all well and enjoying the “sunny
Today I would like to share one of my college days’ memories
with you. Most of our batch fellows found ‘Discrete
Mathematics’ a very tough subject. 90% students did not have
good grade in the semester work. The grade we scored in our
final exam was to determine our destiny-pass or fail. When
our marked final papers were handed back to us, almost whole
class got below the passing grade. As per college rules,
comparative scaling was done due to which twenty percent
students were declared pass in the subject. Fortunately, me
and my friend were among the lucky twenty percent. That day
my grandpa came to pick us from school. We told him that we
are among the few students who have passed. When on his
inquiry we told our marks (which were of course below fifty
percent), his facial expression changed from delighted one
to a solemn one. We explained the details- telling about the
scaling etc.. He said that where we stand in a particular
group doesn’t matter. What is important is our individual
standing. He gave it a religious bend telling that each of
us has to go in his own grave. There we will be rewarded or
punished for our own deeds not of others. On Day of
Judgment, each of us will be held responsible for what we
did and not for others. The excuse that ‘I did this because
others had done it ...’ will not be accepted. Each of us
has been blessed with faculty to judge. We have to evaluate
on our own before doing anything, saying anything… Following
the crowd doesn’t ensure you are on the right track. We need
not worry about what the crowd does and where it goes. For
often it goes the wrong way. Following it will lead us to
same destination. The words that got imprinted in my mind
‘The path to pass the tests of life is narrow and there are
very few people on it.’
Now that I have actually entered the real practical life, I
can understand the wisdom of these words. Majority of people
lie, backbite and are into many vices, few people adhere to
good human values of kindness, honesty, virtue. It is
comfortable to do what others are doing, but what they are
doing doesn’t lead to comfort.
Folks, I’ll sign off now leaving you with some food for
thought.. "Wide is the gate and the road that leads to
destruction is broad and its entrance is big, and many enter
through it. But the road that leads to life is narrow and
its gate is small, so few find it."
