Because of its association with death from aneurysms, myocardial infarction,
heart and renal failure and stroke, hypertension is the number one risk factor for death world
A recent analysis published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found
that the number of people world wide with systolic blood pressures greater than 110
increased from approximately 73,000 to 81,000 per 100,000 people between 1990 and 2015.
Hypertension treatment is a billion dollar business world wide and the effective avoided stroke incidents with pharmaceutical treatment is low. Only when reversal of hypertension is achieved through application of lifestyle treatments, stroke and heart attack risk can be eliminated.
