OBJECTIVE Epidemiologic evidence suggests that high levels of salt consumption are associated with "spastic" disorders of smooth muscles, ie, essential hypertension and bronchial asthma. Experimentally, it has been shown that high intake of salt leads to increased bronchial hyperreactivity in asthmatics, ie, enhanced contractility of bronchial muscle to spasmogenic stimuli. On the basis of these observations, the following questions were asked: (1) Does salt loading worsen the clinical and… Expand
