“Your doctor might tell you “don’t take that with a pinch of salt; you have Hypertension”. Sounds funny, but also serious like heart attack.
The Silent Killer is how people in the medical field refer to High Blood Pressure or Hypertension. They also give the same title to diabetes, prostate cancer, and even Carbon Monoxide. Today we will only focus on Hypertension because according to American Heart Association, if left undetected (or uncontrolled), high blood pressure can lead to many things including heart disease. That in turn, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is the Leading Cause of Death in the United States of America. Among other organizations, the International Society of Hypertension (ISH) also echoed those findings and the importance of accurate measurement.
Now that I got your attention, my imaginary legal team advised me to give the following disclaimer:

I’m not a Doctor, and I’ve never even played one on TV. I should also mention that any resemblance to reality is purely coincidental.
We’re all waivered-up, let’s get this show on the road.”
