Under the section Dietary Sodium, the last few sentences should have read:
PURE study findings (263) are consistent with this evidence, with sodium excretion both >6 g/day and <3 g/day being associated with higher mortality and CVD events compared to 4.00 to 5.99 g/day, despite an overall positive association between sodium excretion and blood pressure (251,263). The increased risk of CVD events with higher sodium intake (>5 g/day) was most prominent in those with hypertension (263). However, methodological issues make studies of sodium intake particularly challenging (267). Additional large appropriately designed observational studies and RCTs are needed to provide further evidence on optimal sodium intake for preventing CVD events (249,268–270).
In the Central Illustration, “Sodium*” should have been “Sodium (if high)”.
