Could you please teach me what is the meaning for the following sentence:
" The kids who did not commonly drink sugar-sweetened beverages wound up eating more than half a gram of salt less than the group of kids who drank sugary drinks. "
By the way, the whole story is:
"Grimes and her colleagues tracked 4,283 Australian kids ages 2 to 16 to examine the relationship between salt intake and sugary drinks. On average, the kids were eating about 6 g of salt per day (one teaspoon equals 5 g), when they should have been consuming up to half as much, between 3 g and 5 g, depending on their age.
Around 62% of the children in the study reported that they regularly drank sugar-sweetened drinks — soda, flavored mineral waters, sports and energy drinks and fruit drinks. The study did not include 100% fruit juice.
Putting the two together, the researchers calculated that for every gram of salt those children ate, they also drank 17 g of sugary drinks. The kids who did not commonly drink sugar-sweetened beverages wound up eating more than half a gram of salt less than the group of kids who drank sugary drinks. “That’s significant,” says Grimes. “It’s a bag of chips a day.”"
Many thanks for your help and time.
