Salt may be the hidden factor in the obesity epidemic but it has slipped off most parents' radar says international salt expert, Professor Graham MacGregor who is in Sydney this week to address health professionals and the food industry on the need to further reduce salt.

Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at St George's Hospital Medical School in London, Professor MacGregor established CASH (Consensus Action on Salt and Health) in 1996 to reduce salt consumption and increase public awareness of salt and its effects on health.
