High Blood Pressure/Hypertension

High Blood Pressure/Hypertension

Over 60 million Americans have high blood pressure or hypertension. High blood pressure is a major risk factor for a heart attack and stroke. What causes high blood pressure in one person may not be the root cause in another person. Some people develop it because they are severely overweight, suffer from weak or failing kidneys, hardening of the arteries, extreme stress, or even liver problems. Dietary and lifestyle changes can go a long way to lowering blood pressure.
