The other day I had prime rib at Black Angus. Then shortly after I was shopping at Target and decided to try out the free blood pressure machine. It read pretty high, about 150/90. Could this be related to having eaten the steak or should I be concerned about being hypertensive? I normally don t eat steaks or beef in general, usually have chicken. And my dad does have high blood pressure so it runs in the family but I am only 25.
