Duck! – another scary high blood pressure warning!
Danger of High Blood Pressure
Are you in danger with high blood pressure? What is high blood pressure? What do the numbers mean when you have taken your blood pressure reading?
Your blood pressure is the force of your blood pressing against the wall of your artery. Each time your heart beats, it is pumping blood through your blood vessels. When your heart beats and is pushing your blood into all the arteries, is what they call the systolic pressures. Then when the heart rests, as that is what they call it- when between its beats, is when the pressures decline and that is what they call the diastolic pressure.
When you have your blood pressure taken there are always these two numbers of the systolic and diastolic pressures. Systolic is the top one and diastolic is the bottom number. They say the almost perfect numbers are like 120/80. This is a base for you to go by when dealing with blood pressures of either the high blood pressure and also for low blood pressures.
So what is the danger of high blood pressure? Some risk factors include things like:
2.Heart disease and heart attacks
4.Can cause blindness
Isn’t this list scary enough for you to take charge of your health and the danger of high blood pressure? Remember, it’s sometimes called the ‘Silent Killer’ and there is a reason for that ugly name. Taking your blood pressure is necessary for all of us and with proper diet and exercise can be controlled very well with eating lots of raw fruits and raw vegetables and low-fat healthy foods.
There’s been a lot of talk lately about getting everyone down to a 120/80 level – even if it requires everyone to be put on drugs for life.
This is pretty much what’s going on these days and distributors of blood pressure lowering drugs are reaping billion dollar bonanzas in the process.
The old rule of thumb of systolic 100 + you age has been turfed – not that you hear the international pharmaceutical companies complain.
The problem with blood pressure lowering medications is two-fold.
First, they don’t cure the cause, just the symptoms. Which means you have to take them till death.
Second, studies have shown that those on blood pressure lowering medications are, on the average, at greater risk of heart attack and stroke.
Although the so-called “danger” of high blood pressure may be reduced by blood pressure lowering medications, you’ve then got the danger of high blood pressure lowering medications themselves!
