Recent reports of selected observational studies and a meta-analysis have stirred controversy and have become the impetus for calls to abandon recommendations for reduced sodium intake by the US general population. A detailed review of these studies documents substantial methodological concerns that limit the usefulness of these studies in setting, much less reversing, dietary recommendations.  Indeed, the evidence base supporting recommendations for reduced sodium intake in the general population remains robust and persuasive.  [publicada: 11 de diciembre 2012].
