The Best Way To Prevent High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is known as a “silent killer” because often there are no symptoms. African Americans develop high blood pressure at a higher rate than any other racial group in the United States. Moreover, high blood pressure tends to occur at younger ages and to be more severe in African Americans. If not properly cared for high blood pressure’s progressive effects can strain the heart, damage blood vessels and increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, and even kidney disease.
