High blood pressure is responsible for 13 percent of all deaths worldwide.
What is high blood pressure? It is also called hypertension, and it simply means that the pressure of blood in your arteries is very high and this usually results in the destruction of the blood vessels.
High blood pressure like is said in the article’s title is indeed a dangerous and silent killer. The most dangerous thing about it is you might have it and not even have the slightest knowledge that you have it. Then before you realize it, there has been a degeneration of the condition into very serious and more deadly conditions like heart failure or stroke.
If your blood pressure measurement is 140 to190 or above then your blood pressure level is considered high by all standards.
Several young and seemingly healthy people today are going about their daily lives with this serious condition hidden deep within them but it is rather unfortunate most are not aware of it.
According to statistic published by the World Health Organization, high blood pressure causes as much as 13 percent of all deaths worldwide. The saddest and dangerous thing about it is victims are highly unaware that they have the danger within them.
Therefore it is highly recommended that we check our blood pressure levels from time to time in order that we can detect this very deadly condition in time before it becomes too late.
The causes of high blood pressure or rather the things that predispose us to having a high blood pressure are:
1. Lack of physical activities
2. The high levels of salt that we consume in our daily diets
3. Obesity or being overweight
4. Diabetes, and in some cases high intake of alcoholic drinks.
Remember blood pressure is a merciless killer and shouldn’t be taken for granted. Control it before it puts an end to your existence.
