An estimated 67 million American adults suffer from high blood pressure that contribute to more than a thousand deaths a day. High blood pressure can result in an individual increasing their risk of stroke by 4 times and become 3 times more likely to die from heart disease. In America, more than $51 billion is spent each year in medical costs associated with high blood pressure. Only half of sufferers have their condition under control and can work towards increasing their health.
Easy ways to lead yourself down a healthier path is to get your blood pressure checked regularly, quit smoking, limit the consumption of alcohol, eat healthy, and maintain a good weight with active lifestyle.
