Wealthy men are nearly twice as likely to develop high blood pressure than men who have a lower income, a study has revealed.
Higher household income was more likely to make men drink alcohol every day and be obese in contrast to wealthy women who were more likely to engage in healthier behaviour.
More than one in four adults in the UK have high blood pressure, with an estimated one billion people living with it worldwide. High blood pressure is the leading global cause of premature death.
Except we do have a problem here. Wealthier people live longer than poorer people – in the UK at least.
Meaning that either these observations don’t apply to the UK or that high blood pressure isn’t all that much of a problem.
