World Health Day: Your Blood Pressure

Blood Pressure Basics 

High Blood Pressure has become one of the National Health’s top priorities, yet many people still don’t fully understand what it means. 

Over a third of people with high blood pressure don’t know it, so are not being treated for this potentially life-threatening disease. That’s because although an estimated 16 million people in the UK suffer from high blood pressure, it rarely presents any symptoms. In fact, the only way to discover you have it is for your Doctor or Pharmacist to measure your blood pressure. 

What does blood pressure mean?
Blood pressure is the pressure your heart produces when it pumps blood around the network of tubes (arteries) that carry blood all around your body. 

How is blood pressure measured?

A lonely girl

i’m a lonely girl
With a lonely heart
In a lonely world
Walking all alone
Suddenly i heard a voice
A voice of a ‘He’
The ‘He’ walked towards me
He asked if he could walk with me
He asked if he could make a lonely girl
A lovely girl in a lovely world with a lovely heart
I didn’t give it a 2nd thought
I gave the He a chance
I gave the ‘he’ my heart
We started the journey together,
The journey of love
Alas! In a twinkle of an eye
He went away without a goodbye
I’m left alone again
As a lonely girl
With a lonely heart
In a lonely world

The Pink Month! The Breast and the enemy

I love breasts!

Not new right? We all do. Still, I just had to let that out. I love them so much that I get hypnotized just by… well… *sigh*

That is not why we are here. We are here because of the enemy- breast cancer. Knowledge is power so let us arm ourselves.

Who is our friend?

The Breasts. The breasts are very important organs that find function for both motherhood and sexuality. Breasts are one of the things that put the ‘FE’ in FEMALE. Though some guys have breasts too, commonly known as’ man boobs’ (salute to Ricky Rozay #boss), the breast is more associated with the female gender.
