One third of young people suffer high blood pressure30th July 2010
A survey has revealed that more than a third of young people suffer from high blood pressure.
Figures suggest that 35% of those aged 16-34 have hypertension, despite the widespread belief that it is an 'old age' problem and almost one in 20 showed severe or very severe raised blood pressure from a sample of tests on more than 8,000 people. Experts blamed binge drinking, bad diet and lack of exercise for the high levels of hypertension, which increases the risk of strokes, heart attacks and kidney problems.
