Sodium and high blood pressure

Here’s the article from The Economist. I eat too much salt, but it isn’t hurting my blood pressure right now (I’m normotensive).  I don’t add any to the food I cook, but it’s present in large quantities in the processed foods I often eat.  What do you do about salt in your diet?

    Controlled diet, exercises and herbs are alternative treatments for hypertension or high blood pressure. Hypertension occurs due to excessive pressure exerted on the walls of arteries. Commonly found causes of hypertension are genetic reasons, poor diet, unhealthy lifestyle, lack of exercises, side effects of medicines, bad habits and obesity. These causes either push heart to pump blood with higher pressure, promote blockages in arteries or harden walls of arteries, due to these problems pressure of blood remains higher than healthy limits and cause severe damage to health including life threatening conditions.^
