HBP Caused in the Brain

According to British research workers of the University of Bristol, high blood pressure is not caused in the heart, but in the brain.

According to the scientists high blood pressure probably comes from an infection in the blood vessels in the brain. The cause of the infection is a protein with white blood cells in the brain, causing a lack of oxygen in the brain.

The researchers say that this new look at high blood pressure should lead to new treatment methods . Rtl
