Press Release Summary: 40% of UK Adults Have High Blood Pressure, making it the largest cause of death and disability according to the Blood Pressure Association (BPA). The First Aid Warehouse is offering some great deals on British Hypertension Society validated Blood pressure monitors for 2008.
Press Release Body: The BPA's 'Know Your Numbers' week last September saw over 250,000 people volunteering to have their blood pressure checked, revealing the shocking results. High blood pressure hot spots include Yorkshire and Humberside, and the West Midlands, both with 45% of those tested suffering from hypertension. Dr Mike Mead, GP and medical adviser to the BPA claims that: \"High blood pressure is a serious health condition.
