Czechs are the third biggest consumers of salt in Europe, followed by Hungarians and Macedonians, Czech Radio reported on Sunday, citing organizers of the 4th Czech Salt Awareness Week. Czechs consume between 10 to 15 grams of salt a day, which is roughly twice the amount recomended by the World Health Organisation. Doctors are warning that children consume excessive amounts of salt and develop addiction to salt at an early age as a result. According to doctors, the highest amount of salt is consumed in smoked meat products, cheese and processed foods, Radio Prague wrote.
