66% Risk Increase of Stroke with Elevated Blood Pressure

66% Risk Increase of Stroke with Elevated Blood PressureAn article I was reading on this topic opened up with this phrase:


If your blood pressure is anything over the normal reading of 120/80 mmHg, a stroke may be in your future — even if it’s not high enough to be considered hypertension.


Isn’t that a scary opener? Well, a new study was just published in Neurology that researched data on 760,000 people found that ‘prehypertension’ were 66% more likely to have a stroke than those with normal blood pressure.

Prehypertension is a blood pressure that’s higher than 120/80 mmHg, but lower than the high blood pressure (hypertension) threshold of 140/90 mmHg.


Neurology reported 20% of all stroke victims in the study were from people with prehypertension. This was so, irregardless of other factors like, high cholesterol, diabetes, and smoking cigarettes.


The takeaway from this study according to the researchers was:


“Considering the high proportion of the population who have higher than normal blood pressure, successful treatment of this condition could prevent many strokes and make a major difference in public health,” study author Dr. Dingli Xu, a blood pressure researcher at Southern Medical University in Guangzhou, China.


I couldn’t agree more. Nevertheless, I would suggest you not begin your prevention with the use of blood pressure medication. Instead, begin with altering your diet removing oily foods, fried foods, processed meats, and processed foods; and add more nutritious LIVE foods, including increasing your liquid calcium intake.


The 90 for life supplements from Youngevity Products wouldn’t be a bad place to start either.
