Binge Drinking Puts College Students At Higher Risk Of Hypertension
from Youth Health Magazine
College students are already at risk of having high blood pressure. A new study shows the positive link between binge drinking and higher BP among young adults. A new study asserts that compared to college students who only drink occasionally, those who practice binge drinking can end up with high blood pressure. High BP is linked to a host of other scary, dangerous and fatal diseases. The findings of the study specifically revealed that among binge-drinking young adults, systolic blood pressure is at least 2.6 points higher than those who do not binge. For the worst cases, it can even be 4 points higher. Senior researcher Jennifer O'Loughlin claimed that this high level of systolic blood pressure can already put someone in the early stage of high blood pressure.
