What causes high blood pressure in men

| May 23, 2015

Alcohol and high blood pressure – wow, this is a good one (he says putting his mug on just kidding). Alcohol and hypertension as a problem is a real enigma.

Part, odd wee drink now and then (say picking pint glass again) is actually quite beneficial and can act as an aid and part treatment of cardiovascular purposes but is that everything taken in excess, they are fall.

Relationship between alcohol and high blood pressure (hypertension) has been recognized for nearly a century and especially the link between hypertension and excessive alcohol consumption, which is more than the recommended intake fair few units (14 for women and 21 for men) a week.

Have been several scientific studies over the past 100 years that have confirmed that Alcoholism is one of several causes of hypertension. Initially it was suggested that alcoholism was a cause of hypertension irrespective of a whole range of other socio-economic factors associated, such as economic status, age, race, weight, cholesterol levels or even tobacco use If you drink excessively

Blood pressure will rise.

Hmmnnn …… It is quite a sobering experience when you look at it like that eh? Pro and Con

Drinking are not for this article is not for me to make statements about the virtues valued by abstinence from alcohol, but the simple fact is inevitable. Alcohol is a drug. It affects the way you feel and affects every system in your body.

When you know the facts and effects of alcohol, it will be in a position to decide what is best long term for you. Briefly

Principle behind the relationship between alcoholism and hypertension is in the following basic premise.

When alcohol is present in the blood stream covering blood vessels and artery walls thereby increasing their tension, thereby increasing blood pressure. This is the basic version and more complex definitions and explanations are available, but they are for medical manuals.

As in all things moderation is the key and this arises (apart from common sense) largely from a report in 1994 in the Journal of the American Medical Association, which published an editorial that suggested that if the entire population United States stopped drinking estimate that could be up to an additional 81,000 deaths from heart disease each year.

OK, sounds interesting and Article continued to ensure that abstaining from alcohol may be better than drinking in moderation.

Meanwhile in Europe, researchers in Denmark were putting the finishing touches to a study that analyzed the drinking habits of thirteen thousand people over a decade. To everyone's amazement the study found that people who downed three to five glasses of wine a day had about half the risk of death teetotallers.

Now enter the Harvard School of Public Health, who said their research showed that the benefits of alcohol consumption (eg, enlargement of blood vessels) disappear after as little as two drinks. It seems generally accepted consensus is that moderation in drinking rules. Consuming one or two drinks a day helps prevent heart attacks and strokes might seem.

Very sad thing about all this is that most medical professionals will tell you that alcohol is one of the areas of job growth treatment in the Healthcare system today. Not only that, but the fastest growth in the population shown to be at highest risk of effects of alcohol abuse are now under the age of thirty and sadly an alarmingly high percentage of these sufferers are female. Shame

Not told us about it at school.

Or maybe they did, but I was too young and stupid to listen.
