This statement should though be taken in the context that it is the body weight that is a precursor to blood pressure; the body blood pressure depends on it and not vice versa.
The science behind the relationship of the body weight and blood pressure is; when one is obese, it means that the body store more fats that the one that are used for respiration and maintenance of the normal body physiology.

When the walls are hardened, they become rigid and narrower making the circumference of the otherwise initially bigger artery to be smaller (Krueger, 2012). This will result into equal volume of blood that would have otherwise passed the artery at a normal speed to be increased due to narrowed artery. This is what brig about high blood pressure in the overweight individuals. If the body weight is controlled, one will not be overweight and this will reduce the occurrence of high blood pressure too.

One will be forced to think again, according to the Archives of the International Medicine, the proponent of the idea are taken to have missed a point. The body conducted a research to prove the point but of the 20, 500 patients that were chosen at random and administered omega-3 and placebo developed heart diseases in equal ...Show more
