Another High Blood Pressure Indicator!

Scientists have concluded that memory lapses may be an indication that you have high blood pressure.

When your blood pressure is too high, your blood vessels become thicker and impede the flow of blood throughout your body ­ including the flow to your brain. Lack of blood to the posterior regions of the brain can manifest as loss of memory, and essentially adds to a person's mental age.

So the next time you have a "senior moment" and can't remember your friend's name or telephone number, laugh it off...and visit your doctor to get your blood pressure checked.
