What is Blood Pressure?
By David Carter

Once we get past thirty years of age most of us would like to become a bit fitter, and may be even improve our general health. There are many ways of improving your health but one of the best methods is to have your blood pressure checked out regularly. As you probably know blood pressure is the pressure of your blood within the arteries, the vessels that carry the blood from your heart and around your body.

This pressure changes throughout the day and can be affected by many different factors, such as the time of day, mealtimes, over excitement, anxiousness, exercise, anger, frolicking with the neighbour even, and smoking, among many others.

How to Lower Your Blood Pressure and Finally Get Results From a Diet

By Ryan Tenney

Here’s a really simple way to lower your blood pressure. Change your diet. That might sound easy. Well, here’s an insider’s tip. It is actually fairly easy to change your diet without too much of a difference in your lifestyle. You’ve heard it before, but fruits and vegetables can make a difference in helping you to look and feel better. Who wouldn’t like that?

For many years now the public has been cautioned against excess amounts of sun exposure. And clearly there is truth behind this. Skin cancer is a very real risk, and precautions such as sun block and long sleeved clothing should be taken when going out in the sun. Yet just as it is generally advised that you should not lay unprotected on the beach for hours at a time, summer after summer, it is steadily becoming more apparent that a lack of sunlight can have very negative, far-reaching consequences on your health as well.
