    Objective: The main objective of this study is to find out the effects of dietary salt on BP in a general adult population, and to perform a systematic review of all published and non-published available scientific literature on dietary salt in relation to BP. Methods: Online search of electronic databases, Cochran systematic reviews, PubMed central, electronic journals, citation searching and Google scholar search were used to identify studies on the association between sodium and BP. A total of 67 papers were retrieved, 10 of which met the inclusion criteria and were included in the review. The authors selected the studies, extracted the data and performed narrative analyses.
