Lowering Blood Pressure with Food

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports, “About 1 of 3 U.S. adults—or about 75 million people—have high blood pressure. High blood pressure (hypertension) is one of the leading causes of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and death in the United States.” Learn by watching research videos, discussion, and eating food for lunch that lowers blood pressure.
