Preventing hypertension thanks to knowledge of your DNA

Hypertension is a condition in which the blood pressure is too high. This increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases, as the walls of the arteries become damaged. High blood pressure is not immediately obvious; symptoms such as headaches and dizziness may only occur if a person's blood pressure is extremely high. Risk factors for high blood pressure include obesity, excessive salt intake, alcohol, stress, diabetes and hereditary factors.

Hypertension and heredity
