Your salt-shaking habits can predict your heart disease risk, according to a new study. The study suggests that tracking how frequently a person tips the salt shaker is a better indicator of overall salt consumption than other research methodologies. People who never or rarely added salt to their food reduced their risk of heart failure by 37% compared to people who said they always added salt.

So, if you're shaking too much salt onto your food, you could be putting your heart at risk. According to the study people who add salt to their meals are more likely to have high blood pressure and be at greater risk for heart disease. The findings underscore the importance of reducing sodium intake to help prevent cardiovascular problems.
