  1. I was prescribed a blue bps.pill it was giving me a headache every day….i ran out of pill… and the headache stoped….

  2. Would love to be an executive for the pharmacutical companies making high blood pressure meds if people fall for this farce….lol!

  3. Of course this has NOTHING to do with the pharmaceutical companies' desire to sell more drugs to us overweight Americans. Suuuuure!

  4. Umm take a look around when you go out today…they are mostly beached whales wobbling around..those Americans with the high blood pressure..the rest are alcoholics.

  5. Big pharma needs that sweet sweet green cheddar. What better way than to classify a giant portion of the population as having high blood pressure and pushing those 'suticles.

  6. NEW Blood Pressure Guidelines

    New blood pressure readings were announced yesterday lowering the upper limit to 130. While elevated blood pressure is certainly not healthy, there are still many factors to consider such as age. Also no mention was made of the role diet and supplements can have on naturally regulating blood pressure. A diet higher in fruits and veggies is of great help. Supplementing with the right ratio of calcium, magnesium, and potassium is also extremely important. Our calcium formula has help thousands of people to naturally lower their blood pressure and may be taken with our without medications. You can view this formula here:

  7. Ever since I was Twenty-six years of age, I was already suffering from high blood pressure and I required to take drugs. I`d been glad I found “yumkum shocking guide” (G00GLE it) sooner mainly because my blood pressure level lowered to the standard level using its help. After pursuing the advice of this author, in less than a month I only have to get half my medicines.

  8. I spent only one month and a half pursuing the advices in fixing blood pressure concerns “nο†οvα yuku” (G00GLE it). I`m obese, diabetic person with Stage II Diabetes, and also have hypertension. I needed to pass a D.O.T. Physical. My blood pressure went from 155 to the normal level of 136 and my weight was 13 lbs lighter. I keep an eye on my blood sugar and it`s now 125-130 when compared to the last time which was always somewhere in the 160s.
