How is salt acting on our body and the immune system?

This week our institute director Prof. Christian Kurts explained in the TV show “Der Vorkoster” (WDR) how salt influences our immune system. He explains findings based on our study “A high-salt diet compromises antibacterial neutrophil responses through hormonal perturbation”, which was published in Science Translational Medicine in 2020. You can here (from minute 17:30 on) watch the findings of the study.
