Staying Fit Lowers Risk of High Blood Pressure



New research confirms that staying fit can reduce the risk of high blood pressure, even if it runs in a patient’s family.

Researchers at the University of South Carolina found you can significantly reduce your risk with moderate exercise and better cardiovascular fitness.

They studied more than six thousand people. Those who were fit had a thirty-four percent lower risk of developing high blood pressure, even if they had a parent who had the disease.
