Reasons and causes for high blood pressure
Blood pressure can be defined as the pressure of blood which blood exerts on the walls of the arteries as blood circulates through the body. Blood pressure is highest near the heart as heart is the pump of blood and as blood leaves the heart through the aorta the blood pressure is more and gradually blood pressure decreases as it enters smaller and smaller and smaller blood. High Blood pressure is also known as Silent Killer because of it no symptoms. The reason that high blood pressure is called the Silent killer is that there are no initial symptoms and prolonged high blood pressure will lead to long term disease and complications.
