Blood pressure is sometimes called the “silent killer” because it usually has no warning signs or symptoms. Keeping your blood pressure within normal limits can control or prevent heart disease and stroke. About 70 million American adults (29%) have high blood pressure—that’s 1 in every 3 American adults. Many people do not know that they have high blood pressure. That’s why it’s important to get your blood pressure checked regularly. High blood pressure greatly increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, the first and third leading causes of death in the United States. Women die from heart disease six times more than all cancers put together. Which is very hard to grasp. If women and men accepted this face we could see a drop in heart disease related death. People would know how important it is to be aware of your heart health and the risk factors within our control.
