Breaking health news: Where you eat your food could contribute to high blood pressure

by , 14 April 2015

If you thought keeping high blood pressure under control was only about what you physically put into your mouth, you'd be mistaken.

In a first of its kind study, researchers from Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School in Singapore, found the place you choose to eat plays a significant role too.

Read on to find out where the best place to eat is, so you don't suffer from high blood pressure…

Eating out vs. eating at home and the impact it has on your blood pressure

 
Experts at the Duke-NUS University wanted to know what’s contributing to the world’s soaring high blood pressure rates. And what people can change within their own lives to keep it from leaving them with heart disease, stroke or kidney damage.
 
Head researcher Professor Tazeen Jafar and one of her students, took data about blood pressure, body mass index and eating habits from 501 university students between the ages of 18 to 40.
 
During the study, they found one strong connection between the students that had either prehypertension or hypertension itself.
 
Almost 30% of the study group suffered with prehypertension. Amongst them, 40% ate more than 12 meals away from home each week.
 
And that’s how researchers came to the conclusion it was these meals, eaten away from home, that contributed to the student’s high blood pressure.
 
Here are the main factors contributing to high blood pressure when you don’t eat food at home…

Are you out of breath just climbing one flight of stairs?
 
Do you suffer severe headaches without knowing why?
 
Do you suddenly get a ringing in your ears?  And blurry vision?
 
You could be experiencing the symptoms of the No. 1 most dangerous health problem in the world today: High Blood Pressure.
 
Discover the truth about blood pressure and how you can lower it with little effort and without medication

You’re eating too much salt and processed foods when you don’t eat at home

 
Even if you choose to eat a healthy meal at your favourite restaurant, there’s a chance it has a higher salt content and more preservatives in than you would get if you ate the same meal at home.
 
And it’s this that’s leaving you with the symptoms of high blood pressure.
 
The only way to change or prevent this devastating disease is to eat more healthy, natural meals at home.
 
So, protect your heart by enjoying home-cooked meals.
