Summary

What’s Interesting:

What I found interesting here is how much age effects high blood pressure. This is something I mentioned in a very important article I recently wrote.

In my article I talk about how only 6% of people in their 20’s have high blood pressure. But it shoots up to around 30% in your 30’s and 40’s and about 70% past the age of 65.

Thus, the REAL cause is a change in your hormones, due to aging. You can read more about this…

What’s Disturbing:

Personally, I found it disturbing that about 33% of people have high blood pressure.

What’s even worse is that another 1/3 have PRE-hypertension. This mean that your blood pressure is above normal, but not yet “super high”.

That’s millions of people walking around with a “ticking time bomb”, which could easily result in a heart attack or stroke at any moment!

The sad part is all the unnecessary use of toxic and harmful prescription drugs when you go to your doctor. When you can lower your blood pressure naturally, quickly and easily!

What’s Shocking:

This part is the scariest.

  • 70% of people who have a heart attack, have high blood pressure!
  • 80% of people who have a stroke, have high blood pressure!
  • About 45%-50% DIE with their FIRST heart attack or stroke!!!

Actually, I could list even more facts that’ll shock you. But, I hope you get the point.

DO NOT WAIT to make improvements in your blood pressure levels. You can do it naturally, quickly, easily and WITHOUT the use of harmful drugs.
