Take Charge of Your Blood Pressure

According to the American Heart Association, 74.5 million adults in the U.S. have been diagnosed with hypertension and twenty-five percent of American adults have pre-hypertension (blood pressure numbers that are higher than normal, but not yet in the high blood pressure range). These figures are especially scary, since high blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure, and kidney disease.

A new book on the shelves, Hypertension Cookbook For Dummies® (Wiley, 978-1-118-19481-2, December 2011), shows readers how to take charge of their blood pressure by making simple and delicious changes to their diets. It features 150 delicious and simple low sodium and low or non-fat meal options that avoid pre-packaged and processed food while remaining economical and easy to prepare. The book covers breakfast, lunch, dinner, easy on-the-go, and kid friendly recipes to suit any lifestyle, and features a full-color 8-page insert exhibiting many of the book's recipes. The diets presented in Hypertension Cookbook For Dummies are not only for those currently diagnosed with high blood pressure, but those who are at risk.
