Pump down the volume

An estimated 40 million people in the United States have high blood pressure. High Blood pressure causes the heart to work harder to pump the blood, which can lead to heart failure and stroke. High blood pressure is often called the silent killer because it is usually asymptomatic. It is important to have your blood pressure checked on a regular basis to help prevent heart disease. A diet low in salt, low in animal fats, high in fiber and omega 3 fatty acids (fish oils) can help lower blood pressure and help fight heart disease. It is extremely beneficial to keep your body weight down and exercise regularly. The more fit you are, the stronger your heart.
