Driving Up Your Pressure
Sometimes we think of everything that stresses us out but maybe we don't consider where we live as something that can create stress. Think about this:
If you often hear the beeping of car horns or the blaring sirens that come with living near a major roadway, new research shows you might not just be at risk for a headache: your blood pressure may suffer, too. The study, which compared proximity to major roadways with high blood pressure in more than 5,400 older women, found that prevalence of high blood pressure increased the closer one lived to a major roadway. Those within 100 meters had the highest risk of high blood pressure.
The authors caution that the study doesn't prove that highways cause high blood pressure, only that there's an association between the two. Increased pollution or traffic-related noises are two possible reasons for the increase. To keep blood pressure at a healthy level, experts suggest maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet and avoiding smoking
