Salt is no cure for cancer

2014 Research

Research from a team from South Korea, the US, UK and Saudi Arabia and published in Nature Chemistry has prompted some publications to suggest salt (sodium Chloride) can kill cancer cells.

There is no new treatment for cancer using salt despite the Mail Online reporting that “Salt injection ‘kills cancer cells’ by causing them to self-destruct.”

As we have already reported (click here) this research was conducted in a laboratory environment and was an attempt to understand how to destabilise a cancer cell through ionic imbalance.

Too much sodium chloride in your diet may actually increase your risk of cancer.
