Posted on behalf of Roger "Doc" Richardson: 

Dear campus community:

A belated welcome back from spring break. I hope you enjoyed your time away, whether you ventured to warmer climates, participated in Alternative Spring Break volunteer trips, or stayed local. For students and faculty alike, spring break is a welcome hiatus from the daily academic routine, especially after the mid-term period. For staff it is a quieter time on campus without the usual hustle-and-bustle. It is also a convenient marker; a halfway point that allows one to take stock of the semester that’s been and the remainder to come.

67 million people have high blood pressure in America

 What we already knew:

  • Risk of CVD (Cardio Vascular Disease) doubles for each incremental increase in SBP of 20 mmHg or DBP of 10 mmHg.
  • Aerobic exercise training leads to reduction in resting BP of 5-7 mmHg in those with hypertension.

New studies show:

  • Using salt substitutes can decrease blood pressure
  • 80% of sodium Americans intake comes from packaged, processed and restaurant foods.
  • Home cooking is a great way to control your sodium intake
  • Exercise can slow down the inevitable increase in blood pressure as you age.
  • Those who have proper protein intake are 40% less likely to develop high blood pressure
  • A combination of a high protein and high fiber intake can even lower the risk for hypertension
  • Consuming flaxseed daily may help reduce high blood pressure
