South Africa taking first place in this list is nothing to be proud of. We top the list of countries in the low- to middle income part of the world as the one with the highest number of people in the older generation living with high blood pressure. No matter what your age, you need to read this so you don't become just another statistic…
This comes from a study done by the World Health Organisation, and it determined that South Africans over the age of 50 are more likely to be living with high blood pressure
than anyone else living in other low- to middle income countries across the entire world!
Just over 3 800 people who took part in the study are from South Africa.
It’s shocking, isn’t it!
Only around half of the group in the study know they have high blood pressure
! And even worse is that of those who know, only a tiny number actually make the effort at controlling it.
With your risk of heart attack and stroke increasing when you have high blood pressure, it’s an absolute must for you to control it.
Start today! Control your high blood pressure
Don’t fall victim to this silent killer… Have your blood pressure checked today!
