Eat more veggies, less red meat to keep BP in check

Consumption of vegetables, fruits, and other plant foods seems to reduce the risk of elevated blood pressure, whereas intake of meat raises the risk, according to a report in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition for December.

Looks like there's more evidence that boosting vegetable intake reduces elevated BP risk. Adjustment for intermediary factors in the causal pathway attenuated these relations, but hey, still good advice, for sure.
