3 out of 4 Irish Taxi drivers have Hypertension

I read this in;

Over 100 taxi drivers were randomly selected and tested for high blood pressure at Dublin Airport in May of this year. Results showed 74% were affected. A blood pressure measurement in excess of the internationally recognised goal of 140/90mmHg was considered hypertensive. GP referrals were made where necessary.

This makes me even more determined to keep the weight off and live a healthier lifestyle.
