Assassination, by all standards of measurement, is one of the cruelest human-human act of hatred and discredit.
In the History of the World, a lot of cases (solved or unsolved) of assassination (attempted or successful) have been headlines, especially in the politics and governance arm of our livelihood.
As it is in the world, so it is in our bodies. The human body is a world of its own and there is an assassin that has been claiming the bodies of thousands and millions of people all over the world. This Silent Assassin is HYPERTENSION.
Hypertension is one of the leading cause of death in the world today and its silence is the root of its success rate. It has killed men and women, ravaged through families and torn them apart. It has killed old and young, pregnant or not. It doesn’t respect gender, influences, affluence or wealth. It creeps, it looms, and dooms.
The contractor (cause) of this successful assassin is usually unknown (primary) but it can also result from a number of things (secondary) though the prevalent contractor is the former not the latter.
You are not really taken care of yourself if you’re not keeping your blood pressure in check. The assassin has a flag, and a high blood pressure above 140mmHg is a brightly colored flag. The Police is not the only faction of our society that is interested in being your friend, Doctors want to be your best friends. Make a date with them, let them help you look for this flag and trust their judgments. You can look for the flag yourself (you can get digital blood pressure instruments), or check in any certified pharmacy nearest to you.
Do not fall victim of this assassin, you can overcome it and can avoid being on its list of successful assassinations.
