Talks on lifestyle and diet with a focus on the role of salt and a very informative talk on the function and the role of the kidneys are presented. The effect of salt in causing high blood pressure is highlighted and some interesting facts on some of the most popular foods of today are normally a big eye-opener to the learners. Read More
