A SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE IS NOT ONLY STEALING YOUR STRENGTH AND ROBBING YOU OF A SHARP MIND…IT’S KILLING YOU!
A Fair Warning: This article may be difficult to read.
High blood pressure. They call it the silent killer. But they ought to reclassify it with a more appropriate name:
The Silent Serial Killer
High blood pressure is an emotionless, merciless, cold blooded killer. It murders 1,000 people every day, and threatens 1 in every 3 adults over the age of 20.
That means you have a 1 in 3 chance that this serial killer is silently stalking you right now … lurking secretly in the shadows … just waiting for the opportunity to claim you as its next victim.
Or worse … victimize one of your precious loved ones, destroying their life with a stroke or heart attack, which are two of the leading causes of deaths every year.
Horrifically, the carnage doesn’t stop there. If you have been unusually forgetful lately, it may have nothing to do with your age.
Apparently, it’s not enough for high blood pressure to attempt to put you in an early grave; it also wants to …
Rob You of The Joy of a Sharp Mind.
Researchers tell us that for every 10-point increase in your diastolic blood pressure, (that’s the bottom number) it increases your odds of cognitive difficulties by 7%.
High blood pressure is the equivalent of instantly being 10 years older!
Unfortunately, that’s just the beginning of the horrible things this terrifying disease does to those who don’t control it.
What is blood pressure, and what happens when it’s Too high?
By definition, blood pressure measures the amount of force that is being pushed outward against your arterial walls when your heart beats.
And with high blood pressure — given enough time — the muscle tissue that makes up the walls of your arteries become stretched beyond its healthy limit.
Overuse damage can do wicked things like …
Gravely weaken your blood vessels. When high blood pressure causes your blood vessels to become weak and creates soft spots, they are much easier to rupture. The results are very unkind: hemorrhagic strokes and aneurysms are the most common.
Cause horrific inter-vascular scarring. Over stretching tears and scars the inside of your arteries and veins. The scars then create the perfect netting to capture cholesterol or other blood cells.
Create the build-up of blood clots. Trapping and forming blood clots that narrow and restrict proper flow. The real danger begins when these clots break off and cause heart attacks, or strokes.
Build plaque that shuts off blood flow. Clogged arteries due to cholesterol and plaque build-up that can shut off most, if not all your blood supply. That places greater pressure on the rest of your system, which forces you heart to work even harder.
Result in deadly organ damage. When your organ tissue — like your kidneys and brain — doesn’t get proper blood flow, they are starved of oxygen and nutrition, and they start dying. High blood pressure has a known history of causing brain cells to die during a stroke.
Hit you with your first heart attack. Dreadfully, 7 of every 10 people who suffer heart attack have high blood pressure.
Victimize you with your first stroke. Worse than heart attack, 8 out of every 10 people who experience their first stroke has high blood pressure.
Slowly torture you with chronic (long lasting) heart failure. Unfortunately, 7 out of every 10 people with chronic heart failure have high blood pressure.
The scariest part of all this is that 1 in 3 adults have no idea they are a ticking time bomb, walking around with blood pressure numbers that are higher than normal, or how to best treat it.
