 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

How many students are enrolled in or completed a particular major or minor?  How many faculty and staff does Ithaca College have?  What are IC's retention and graduation rates?  How has the College's racial/ethnic diversity changed over time?  Where do our alumni get jobs or go to grad school?  All of this information, and much more, is available on the Institutional Data page of IR's public website.

Institutional Research serves as IC's comprehensive source of historical and trend data about the College.  Over the years, we have increased the amount of information we make available on our public website.  We have also added interactivity and improved the visual appeal of the analyses.  Visit our site to find out more!

Submitted on behalf of Yvonne Rogalski, Faculty Chair of the James J. Whalen Academic Symposium:
