    Study Finds Black Women Most Likely to Have High Blood Pressure


    MONDAY, Dec. 23, 2013 (HealthDay News) -- Black women in the United States are much more likely to have high blood pressure than black men or white women and men, according to a new study.

    The researchers also found that blacks are twice as likely as whites to have undiagnosed and untreated high blood pressure.


    "For many years, the focus for high blood pressure was on middle-aged men who smoked. Now we know better," said study author Dr. Uchechukwu Sampson, an assistant professor of medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn.

    Yup!

    It is hereditary for sure.

    My entire family has it, men too. All shapes, weights, and sizes...we all have it for the most part.

    Tell me, what are your thoughts on this, just curious:


    Deuteronomy 28:65-66

    66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:
