Irrational use of salt is one of factor for heart disease.

LAHORE, July 19, 2009 (Balochistan Times) -- The irrational use of salt is one of the major reasons that leads to develop ischemic heart disease Ischemic heart disease
Insufficient blood supply to the heart muscle (myocardium).

Mentioned in: Myocarditis

ischemic heart disease 
 (IHD IHD ischemic heart disease. ). Maj Dr. Muhammad Yousuf Khan (Retd) while talking to reporter here Sunday claimed on the basis of his 30 year life long field and research experience that in the perspective of Universal Relation Theory (URT URT

) there is definite link between salt consumption and developing basic lesion of IHD. He said that irrational use causes increased cellular resistance, enhanced cellular irritation, loss of cellular elasticity that leads to cellular injury the endothelial injury that sets in inflammation which leads to angina pectoris and myocardial infarction. He said that theory behind this conclusion is that as per URT, salt acts as body space reducer. When consumed rationally it maintains the body spaces at different body levels which helps maintain body tone. When salt is used in irrationally higher quantities it reduces body spaces along with the temperatures at different body levels including spaces in cardiac vascular endothelium. Dr. Yousuf said that this leads to loss of elasticity which leads to endothelial injury while it initiates inflammatory response along with deposition of cholesterol leads here as a part of repair process. This inflammatory response and deposition of cholesterol leads to narrowing of blood vessels lumen resulting in reduction and cessation of blood supply which results in myocardial infarction of the affected part of the heart. The salt is not only the factor causing myocardial infarction but it is one of the factors that causes myocardial infarction. He said he totally disagree with the research of British experts that there is no link between consuming salt (Sodium Chloride) and developing IHD. About the impact of use of coffee and tea on human body, he said that the irrational use of coffee and tea can expose human beings to serious diseases that can prove crippling and fatal reducing human life. Both items enhance human cellular resistance that paves way for allergy, inflammation, autoimmunity, resistance mutation and diseases due to these phenomena. He claimed that tea and coffee if used irrationally contribute to the causation of genetic, congenital diseases, stunted body and brain growth. In growing age it causes, early grey hairing, tinnitus, disturb hearing, attacks of pharyngitis pharyngitis

Inflammation and infection (usually bacterial or viral) of the pharynx. Symptoms include pain (sore throat, worse on swallowing), redness, swollen lymph nodes, and fever.
, tonsillitis tonsillitis

Inflammatory infection of the tonsils, usually with hemolytic streptococci (see streptococcus) or viruses. The symptoms are sore throat, trouble in swallowing, fever, and enlarged lymph nodes on the neck.
, frequent chest infections, flu, disturbed concentration, anxiety, IQ disturbance, confusion while going deep to problem solving, hypertension, skin disease, skin appendages, easy vulnerability to bacterial viral and fungal infections, tuberculosis, Alzheimers diseases, sarcoidosis Sarcoidosis Definition

Sarcoidosis is a disease which can affect many organs within the body. It causes the development of granulomas. Granulomas are masses resembling little tumors. They are made up of clumps of cells from the immune system.
 and amyloidosis Amyloidosis Definition

Amyloidosis is a progressive, incurable, metabolic disease characterized by abnormal deposits of protein in one or more organs or body systems.
. Dr. Yousuf Khan said that if use rationally, tea and coffee can play very important role in human life by coping with situations as depression, lethargy, loss of vigour and vitality to dispel the effects of global warming

Main article: Global warming

The predicted effects of global warming on the environment and for human life are numerous and varied. It is generally difficult to attribute specific natural phenomena to long-term causes, but some effects of
, chronic fatigue syndrome chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), collection of persistent, debilitating symptoms, the most notable of which is severe, lasting fatigue. In other countries it is known variously as myalgic encephalomyelitis, chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome, and  and obesity etc. He said that URT does not see that extra ordinary role to be played by tea and coffee in enhancing human life but on the other hand British experts say that both enhance human life which, he added, is not based on ground realities. He said that theory behind this conclusion is that increased resistance results in increase in bacterial, viral and fungal infections also. If used rationally these detrimental effects can be avoided so irrational use along with other factors contributes towards causing diseases mentioned above.
