: how many people die of high blood preasure

High blood pressure is a major risk factor for both heart disease, especially heart attacks, and stroke.

I have never seen any stats for the cause of death being high blood pressure, but there are stats on the number of deaths due to heart attack and stroke. These come from The American Heart Assn. The last year so far on record are stats for 1997 within the United States as follows:
Heart Attack Deaths - Over 460,000
Stroke Deaths - About 160,000

Another thing you should consider are the number of people who suffer a heart attack or stroke and either survive or die. Again, the stats available are for 1997. Total number of heart attacks was over 1 million, and the total number of strokes was about 600,000.

It is important that high blood pressure be kept under control.

Ken
