Male teens more likely to have high BP

…Even adolescents are getting high BP—boys more so than girls.

…It could be hormonal, says a Canadian physician.

…This from a five-year study that looked at 614 boys and 653 girls in Montreal secondary schools.

…Our old friends lack of exercise and sedentary lifestyle probably also contribute.

…The more hours in front of the tube or computer, the higher the likelihood of higher systolic levels (the top number).

…Jump around a little, guys! You don’t want to go through all the BP stuff the rest of your life.
