We would like to thank all of the celebrities and MPs who have leant their support to Know your Numbers! Week 2010. See what they have to say about the UK's biggest blood pressure event:
Sian Lloyd, ITV Weather Presenter
"I wish the Blood Pressure Association the very best of luck with the blood pressure testing World Record attempt during Know your Numbers! Week 2010. It's a great way of highlighting the importance of regular blood pressure checks and I hope everyone in Cardiff lends their support to help make it into the record books."
Dr Julian Lewis, MP for New Forest East
"I'm getting my blood pressure checked and supporting the Blood Pressure Association's Know your Numbers! Week because it's vital that people realise the importance of good blood pressure health."
Rhodri Morgan, Welsh Assembly Member
"I'm delighted to be supporting this exciting blood pressure testing World Record attempt in Cardiff.
"Of course, there's also a serious message behind this. I have taken much more interest in my blood pressure in recent years than I did in my first 68 years of life. From my own experience of a near heart attack I know that there are often no obvious warning signs so, as the Blood Pressure Association says, getting regular blood pressure checks really is essential.
"Like any other person who has had a heart problem, slightly lowering your blood pressure means that you put less of a burden on your critical arteries around the heart. That is why it is so important to keep an eye on your blood pressure through regular check ups."
Anna Soubry, MP for Broxtowe
"I'm getting my blood pressure checked and supporting the Blood Pressure Association's Know your Numbers! Week because it's vital that people realise the importance of good blood pressure health. I hope everyone living in the Broxtowe constituency will take the opportunity to stop by for their free and convenient blood pressure check."
