Dr. Robert Kowalski: Twenty five percent of the population has actual hypertension. That’s where the numbers would be over 140/90. Raena Morgan: Okay. Dr. Robert Kowalski: More than that. Those people are in actual risk and are now subject to heart attack and stroke. But for years, doctors have said that the numbers between 140 at the highest side and 120 on the lower side would be a level of between safe and the high normal. Raena Morgan: All right. Dr. Robert Kowalski: Then in 2003 there were a new set of guide lines presenting new data showing that those people in that no mans land are actually at increase risk and that those numbers of let’s say 130/85 right in the middle, that’s a predictor that those individuals will definitely, not maybe but definitely progress to full blown hypertension. That’s another 25% of the population, so half of the population has at least some elevation in blood pressure. Raena Morgan: Well that is caused for concern and what we’d like to do is to visit with you about different ways, different approaches to tale care of this problem, to amend the situation on natural remedies, supplements as well as activities. So we like to visit with you again Bob all right? Dr. Robert Kowalski: I’d love to do it. Raena Morgan: Thank you very much.
