Rising Hypertension Rates Could cause A Cardiovascular Disease Epidemic


BBC news reported the results of a study unveiled at the European Parliament in Brussels, which shows that increasing rates of high blood pressure, caused by new lifestyles can create a global epidemic of heart disease.

Eastern and Central European countries (China, India, Russia) with western economies, have experienced rising rates of hypertension because of the newly adapted hectic lifestyles.

Hypertension is a major risk factor for developing heart disease. Roughly 8 million people die annually from diseases associated with hypertension. Approximately 30 percent of the adult population have high blood pressure. Scientists believe that number could double within the next 20 years, unless public effort refocuses on addressing the underlying causes of the disease.
