Hypertension is an important risk factor in developing heart diseases. If the blood pressure goes systolic 20 millimetres above 140 or diastolic goes 10 millimetres above 90 millimetres the risk of developing heart increases by twice. The Framingham Heart Study says that blood pressure above 115-117 is sign of a developing heart disease. However, if blood pressure of the population is lowered then there would be a significant reduction in the rate of heart attacks or brain attacks. Therefore, controlling the blood pressure of the population is of utmost importance. Watch this video to know how hypertension affects cardiac risks.
