(HealthDay News) -- If your blood pressure seems to rise
continually, you should take a careful look at your lifestyle.
Here are habits you can change, suggested by the U.S. Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention:
- Eating too many foods high in salt and low in potassium.
- Getting insufficient physical activity.

cholesterol, heart disease and diabetes.

one daily drink, and men should hold the line at two daily
- Smoking cigarettes.
