10 Hidden Health Dangers You Can’t Ignore

High Blood Pressure

Hypertension affects nearly one in every three American adults—but one in five do not know it. It’s often called the “silent killer” because there are no symptoms. Here’s why this matters: high blood pressure is the leading cause of stroke—and only about half have it under control. With numbers this high, it’s likely that you or your mother, brother, or friend could have it too.

What to do? Don’t wait until your next check-up to find out what your numbers are; get a reading done at a pharmacy or buy a monitor to use at home.

Recommendation: Write down your blood pressure numbers so that you can get a feel for your average. Our blood pressure naturally fluctuates, so this way you can see where you are. You’re shooting for 120/80.
