Thirty Million Americans Getting Some Bad Health News
According to USA Today, thirty million Americans are getting some bad health news. They have high blood pressure and need to do something about it.

Most of those people will be urged to change their diets, exercise more and make other lifestyle changes rather than take medication. Click on the above link for more information.
