This compares with 2.3 per capita in the United States. However, the specialty distribution of physicians is strikingly different between the United States and the other countries. In the United States, only about 33 percent of all physicians declare themselves to be primary care physicians (Politzer et al., 1991). This contrasts with the other countries, which have predominantly primary care physicians (53-63 percent) (Chaulk and Bialek, 1993; Rodwin et al., 1990; Fielding and Pierre-Jean, 1993; McAuley, 1992).

Twenty-four-hour urinary sodium from complete urine samples is the only accurate way to estimate dietary salt intake, and this was not measured in NHANES III and IV. The large international study—INTERSALT, 2 which had 24-h urinary sodium and BP measured, showed that salt intake is directly associated with BP and the increase in BP with age in more than 10,000 individuals including both hypertensives and normotensives. -- -- http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/new/press/nov30a99.htm -- Healthy adults living in a temperate climate can maintain a normal sodium balance with as little as 115 mg of dietary sodium per day.

    37. 37. “A global response to aglobal problem: the epidemic of overnutrition.” WHO 2002 It is estimated that by 2020 2/3 rds of the global burden of disease will be attributable to chronic noncommunicablediseases, most of them strongly associated with diet. The nutrition transition towards refined foods, foods of animal origin, and increased fats plays a major role in the current global epidemics of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, among other noncommunicable conditions. Sedentary lifestyles and the use of tobacco are also significant risk factors. …….. A concertedmulti-sectoral approach, involving the use of policy, educationand trade mechanisms, is necessary to address these matters.
