Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is dangerous because it can lead to brain stroke, heart attack, heart failure, or kidney disease. A large number of people in the world are suffering from high BP from a very early age.
High Blood Pressure results in hardening of the blood vessels and is the cause of many diseases by the time the person reaches 50 years of age. Regular exercise, low fat diet, staying away from smoking and excess alcohol can keep your blood pressure within the normal limits of 120/80.
To prevent high blood pressure, everyone should be encouraged to make lifestyle modifications, such as eating a healthier diet, quitting smoking, and getting more exercise. Treatment with medication is recommended to lower blood pressure to less than 140/90 in people younger than 60, and less than 150/90 in people older than 60.
