Shocking SA statistics: White people are more likely to die from hypertension

by , 13 September 2013

In Parliament on Tuesday, South Africa's statistician general Pali Lehohla dropped a health bombshell of note: 15% of South Africans died from hypertension-related conditions and most of them were white! Here's the shocking truth behind Lehohla's hypertension comment, plus a surprising natural remedy you can use to avoid becoming a statistic…

"Illnesses such as hypertension and heart disease are killing more whites than blacks.” That’s what statistician-general Lehohla told Parliament, reports iafrica.

But “forget the role played by much salt, alcohol, age, exercise, genetics and other factors listed by the Hypertension Society of South Africa,” says the Mail & Guardian.

The real reason is white people are unhappy.

Could unhappiness be behind your high blood pressure?

It’s not as far-fetched as it sounds.

In the past, studies by various heart foundations have shown that happiness (in your marriage, financial situation, family life, job, etc.) plays a huge role in whether or not you’ll have high blood pressure.

Since hypertension is actually persistently elevated blood pressure, this makes sense.

Don’t become a statistic! Get hypertension under control the natural way

Hypertension affects one in five adults. That’s a lot of people running around with high blood pressure.

But you don’t have to be one of them.

Simply drink a glass of beetroot juice every day to keep it at bay. A study published in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension, showed “just a single glass of this simple, nutrient-packed juice was enough to drop blood pressures, on average, by 10 full points,” explains Dr Jonathan Wright, the natural health specialist behind Nutrition & Healing.

And it gets better: The blood pressure-lowering effects of beetroot juice last a full 24 hours after you drink it.

So there you have it. Don’t succumb to this fatal ‘unhappiness’ disease. Use this natural remedy to keep your heart healthy and your blood pressure in check.
