Yes. What a surprise! ...the flesh of hogs that get absolutely NO exercise during their lifetime and get fed a diet of grain has lots of saturated fat and cholesterol.. and it causes high blood pressure in humans? Omg what a breakthrough! /sarcasm Btw. Someone here mentioned exercise... Exercise does not burn off cholesterol. Processed pork (bacon, hotdogs) also causes lung cancer. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/68058.php The reason a lot of people here are reluctant to consider pork unhealthy is because they're defensive simply because it tastes good to them.

I am a very fit 45 year old (i run marathons). I have high blood pressure but everything else is normal. Cholesterol is 135, no diabetes, no family history. I meditate 25 minutes a day and eat a pretty healthy diet. Is there anything other than stress that would explain my high blood pressure?

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
