Ten Types Of People Who Are More Likely To Develop High Blood Pressure


The amount of force that blood exerts on the walls of blood vessels is what is meant to be measured when referring to blood pressure. The heart is responsible for pumping blood into the blood vessels of the body, which are then responsible for distributing the blood to the rest of the body. High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is hazardous because it causes the heart to work harder to pump blood out to the body and contributes to the hardening of the arteries, also known as atherosclerosis, as well as to stroke, renal disease, and heart failure.
