|SYDNEY Andy Pettitte Jersey , Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- Australian men on average are eating twice the amount of salt considered safe by the World Health Organization, with their female counterparts not far behind, according to latest research.
The men are taking about 10.1 grams of salt a day and the women are taking 7.34 grams, against the recommended maximum salt intake of 5 grams a day, according to the findings of a study led by Professor Bruce Neal, senior director of the Food Policy Division of the Australia-based George Institute for Global Health Dallas Keuchel Jersey , and released on Monday.
"Strong and consistent evidence indicates that a high dietary salt intake increases blood pressure, which in turn increases the risk of cardiovascular disease," the researchers wrote in their report, which was published online by the Medical Journal of Australia. They analyzed more than 30 studies and material covering more than 16,800 participants between 1989 and 2015.
"Despite a steady improvement in mortality rates over the past three decades, cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in Australia ... reducing population salt intake is projected to be one of the most cost-effective strategies for reducing rates of premature death and disability attributable to high blood pressure and vascular disease Gerrit Cole Jersey ," they said.
Despite a number of programs for reducing salt intake in Australia, "there has been no robust assessment of national intake levels that would permit the success or failure of these programs to be quantified."
Their results highlighted the need for "systematic, standardized and repeated assessments of a national sample of the population in order to determine whether salt reduction programs are achieving the target of a 30 percent reduction in intake by 2025."
Between 2014 and 2015, close to 6 million Australians aged 18 years and over had high blood pressure, according to health surveys by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. In 2015, more than 45 Jose Altuve Jersey ,300 deaths in the country were attributed to cardiovascular disease, with one Australian dying as a result of the condition every 12 minutes, bureau figures showed.
New Orleans Pelicans forward DeMarcus Cousins, set for a starting appearance in the NBA All-Star Game next month, will instead miss the remainder of the season, the club announced on Saturday.
Cousins will undergo surgery to repair a ruptured left Achilles tendon suffered when he was going for a rebound late in the Pelicans' 115-113 victory over Houston on Friday.
An MRI exam confirmed the extent of the injury and the need for surgery for the 2016 Rio Olympic gold medalist Carlos Correa Jersey , whose spot on the LeBron James All-Star roster will be taken by Oklahoma City's Paul George.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver named George to the LeBron lineup to challenge Stephen Curry's squad in next month's All-Star contest, but it will be James who decides which player replaces Cousins as a starter.
Paired with fellow big man Anthony Davis, Cousins had helped push the Pelicans toward their first playoff appearance since 2015 and what would have been the first postseason trip of his eight-season NBA career, six of those campaigns with Sacramento.
Cousins is averaging 25.2 points and 1.6 blocked shots a game as well as career highs of 12.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists a game.
He ranked third in the league in rebounds and eighth in scoring.
George received the most voting points from coaches among Western Conference players who were not named as All-Star reserves.
The head coach of Team LeBron — determined by the East's best record through February 4 — will choose who fills Cousins' spot in the starting lineup. Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens is not eligible for the honor after coaching in last year's All-Star Game.
The other Team LeBron reserves are the LaMarcus Aldridge, Bradley Beal, Kevin Love Nolan Ryan Jersey , Victor Oladipo, Kristaps Porzingis, John Wall and Russell Westbrook.
George's All-Star selection is the fifth of his career, including his third in a row. In his first year with the Thunder, the 27-year-old is averaging 20.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 36.4 minutes per game.
Also announcing a season-ending surgery on Saturday were the Memphis Grizzlies Craig Biggio Jersey , who declared the campaign over for guard Mike Conley.
Conley, who had been sidelined since November, will undergo surgery to smooth a small bone protrusion in his left heel that continues to cause pain. He is expected to recover in time for the 2018-19 season.
The 30-year-old son of 1992 Olympic triple jump champion Mike Conley Sr has played 11 NBA seasons, all for the Grizzlies.
In 12 games this season, Conley averaged 17.1 points, 4.1 assists and 2.3 rebounds a game.
