Here's something else you can do to lower your risk of high blood pressure: eat more blueberries. A new study suggests that eating at least one serving per week can reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure by as much as 10 percent. This finding comes from a study involving 134,000 women and 47,000 men and investigations by researchers from Harvard and from Britain's University of East Anglia. The study teams looked at 14 years worth of data from the ongoing Nurses' Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study. None of the participants had hypertension at the outset, but during the course of the studies, 35,000 developed high blood pressure.
