Blood Pressure and Brain Health

This article from the BBC highlights the strong link between blood pressure and brain health.

Prof Jonathan Schott, a clinical neurologist at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, led the research.

He said: “Blood pressure, even in our 30s, could have a knock-on effect on brain health four decades later. Monitoring and interventions aimed at maximising brain health later in life need to be targeted at least by early mid-life.”

We are now able to measure both and should be doing so on a regular basis.

Is there any more important aspect of our health than how we think?
