Doctor in the House: Malaysians Like It Salty (But We Shouldn’t)

It’s no secret that Malaysians love food, and maybe we also love the salt in our food, a little too much. But just how much salt are we consuming, and if we’re over the limit, how do we cut down on salt without compromising on taste? And is it really so bad to have that little bit more salt in our food? Prof Datin Dr Chia Yook Chin, founder and president of the Malaysian Society for World Action on Salt, Sugar and Health joins consultant urologist Dr George Lee to share some tips and why it is important for us to watch what we eat.
