  1. Very timely and informative article. Although I do not suffer from hypertension, it was really interesting to read about its impact on society. As a black man, I was particularly interested in learning how disparities in the administration of treatment protocols increases the impact of hypertension within the African-American community. Given the challenges Americans have maintaining healthy habits throughout their lives, this article should serve as a wake-up call to any who take the time to read it.
