What is Blood Pressure? The Huffington Post investigates

Earlier this month, HuffPost UK Lifestyle reported that in Britain, 16 million people suffer from high blood pressure and a recent study by Cambridge University has found that 10% of sufferers - 1.6 million could be cured if they were diagnosed early.  Huffington Post has followed up this story with an editorial featuring advice from Blood Pressure UK.

Katharine Jenner, CEO of Blood Pressure UK said: "High blood pressure (defined as over 140/90mmHg) is very widespread across the UK population...however many people don’t know it, as they don’t have their blood pressure tested. Even if your blood pressure is in what is considered to be the ‘normal’ range (around 130/80), you can still benefit from lowering it, as the risks start much lower.

"The good news, is that you lower your blood pressure and reduce your risk of having a stroke or heart attack at any age –  you are never too young or too old to take steps to reduce your blood pressure!"
