Dry January is the UK's one-month alcohol free challenge that helps millions reset their relationship with alcohol each year. During Dry January last year 71% slept better and and 58% lost weight. The campaign is organised by Alcohol Change UK who are working to reduce the harm drinking causes. A month off can lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of diabetes and lower cholesterol.
Most people eat at least twice as much salt as they should. This means you retain more water and you are more likely to have high blood pressure - which means a greater risk of heart disease and stroke. Too much salt is also linked to osteoporosis and stomach cancer and it can make asthma worse. This leaflet shows you how it is very easy to cut down.
