The 2006 Health Survey for England estimated that around one-third of adults have hypertension. However, it is not possible to estimate how many people in the United Kingdom are at risk of sodium-induced hypertension specifically as high salt intake is only one of the risk factors that contribute to hypertension. Other risk factors for hypertension include overweight, physical inactivity, and alcohol consumption. Copies of the survey are available in the Library.
