There are sharply contrasting opinions in the scientific literature surrounding the recommendation to reduce dietary sodium intakes. On the one hand, current Canadian recommendations are for an Adequate Intake of 1.5 g/day, and an Upper Level recommendation of 2.3 g/d. On the other hand, recent publications indicate that sodium intakes at Adequate Intake levels may be associated with increased mortality. In this debate session, Dr. Mary L'Abbé and Dr. Alexandra Kazaks will provide evidence for and against, respectively, recommendations to reduce sodium intake in the Canadian population.
