Hypertension, or high blood pressure, remains a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for more cardiovascular disease (CVD) related deaths than any other modifiable risk factors. It comes in second, only to cigarette smoking, as a leading preventable cause of death in the US, according to latest studies. 
Check out the Science-In-Brief synopsis of 2017 ACC/AHA/AAPA/ABC/ACPM/AGS/APhA/ASH/ASPC/NMA/PCNA Guidelines for the Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Management of High Blood Pressure in Adults published in 2017.
