Salary can have effect on hypertension

|

According to researchers from the University of California hourly wages can have a significant impact on younger adults ages 25 to 44 and women, groups often considered less at risk for developing hypertension.

Further according to researchers, a salary double what they currently make would decrease their risk of developing high blood pressure by 16%. Among women and younger adults the decreased risk is even more drastic — 30%-35% and 25%-30% respectively.
