High blood pressure is considered to be too high when it is above 140/90 mm Hg. In Canada, more than 4.6 million people have been diagnosed with hypertension and many others have high blood pressure without knowing it.
Why should I control my blood pressure?
Hypertension caused damage to the walls of the blood vessels that feed the muscles, the heart, the brain and also all the organs of our body. This can eventually cause cardiovascular heart disease.
According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 17.5 million deaths are due to cardiovascular diseases which account for 31% of total global mortality. Risk factors related to these diseases include poor diet, smoking, obesity, excessive alcohol consumption and lack of physical activity.
