Study Finds Building Muscle Strength Can Help Reduce Blood Pressure in Men

High blood pressure is a very common condition in men over 40.  There is no doubt that regular exercise, watching your weight, and trying to reduce stress are all good ideas when you're trying to lower your blood pressure.  But, according to a new study out of the University of South Carolina, there may be one way to reduce your risk by as much as 34%.  It is a way not many people have thought about.  The study finds that men who build muscle strength can reduce their risk dramatically.  According to the findings reported in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, men over 40 can make a real difference by doing this.
