High Blood Pressure May Age Your Brain - Even If You're Under 40, University of California, Davis (UCD) Study
Published: Nov 06, 2012
Researchers at the University of California at Davis released a study today that should give anyone with even mildly elevated blood pressure pause. It seems that having blood pressure higher than the optimal 120/80 may be aging your brain, putting you at risk for memory problems and eventually for dementia and Alzheimer’s. And this appears to be true even for people in their thirties and even for people with pre-hypertension.
