Could High Blood Pressure Ever Be A Good Thing?

Possibly, says a recent study. While high blood pressure in most adults can be a warning sign for heart attacks and strokes, recent studies are showing that higher blood pressure may actually be a good thing for people over 80 years old.

The findings showed that in older men and women, high blood pressure could actually cause a decrease in mortality.

What this means – as studies continue – is that when it comes to blood pressure, each case is unique. What’s best for someone else may not be what is best for you.
