Millions At Risk From High Blood Pressure In China: Study

From AFP:

Hypertension plays a part in 2.3 million cardiovascular deaths in China each year, doctors reported on Tuesday, pointing a finger at high levels of salt in the Chinese diet.

Health specialists led by Jiang He, a professor at the Tulane University School of and Tropical Medicine in New Orleans, made the estimate from a nationally representative sample of 170,000 Chinese aged 40 and over.

Extrapolating across the country, 2.3 million cardiovascular deaths in 2005 were related to raised blood pressure, they said.
