A new Canadian study has revealed that half of people tested at mobile clinics were unaware they had a condition that's often referred to as a "silent killer" -- high blood pressure. Also called hypertension, high blood pressure puts extra strain on the heart and blood vessels. In turn, the risk for heart attack and stroke is increased. However, there are no symptoms whatsoever. According to UPI, the study authors claim the public needs greater awareness about the condition. After testing roughly 1,100 volunteers in public settings, study revealed that 50 percent of the participants were unaware they had high blood pressure. Of these people, 2 percent were at very high risk for health complications. The findings were published online Jan. 5 in the American Journal of Hypertension.
