New high blood pressure guidelines

High pressure, which for decades has been a top reading of at least 140 or a bottom one of 90, drops to 130 over 80 in advice announced yesterday by a dozen medical groups.

Poor diets, lack of exercise and other bad habits cause 90 per cent of high blood pressure.
