The silent killer of your heart: Kills you without feeling anything
Not by accident, high blood pressure is named as the “silent killer” because, over a long period of time it has no detectable external symptoms, it isn’t causing any well-defined pain, even though it has been silent for many years.
Medical statistics show that high blood pressure is the world’s leading cause of death, being the most widespread disease of mankind, killing about 20% of the adult population. It is believed that this disease and its complications make more victims than cancer and traffic accidents, taken together.
In most cases, hypertension is a frequently asymptomatic action, with no distinct manifestations. Most of the time, the disease is discovered at a medical check-up for other health problems when most patients remain surprised by the condition they did not even suspect.
