Have you ever witnessed a loved one slump and died in mysterious circumstances, in spite of every conservative effort to resuscitate him/her, including rushing to the nearest hospital only to be told he had given up the ghost? What was the collective and your personal opinions or conclusion on the cause of death.? If you’ve never seen such an incident, perhaps you have heard such stories before.

What has been your submission? Here in Nigeria, sudden deaths are mystical and attributed to either witches /wizards or some unknown enemies within the deceased family or among friends, colleagues at work or perceived envious business partners. It is usually so because eye witness accounts prove that victims usually showed no signs of illness and rarely complained. They look healthy physically until they suddenly go down inevitably.

But know today that more than 80% of sudden deaths are caused by a disease which the WHO has named “the silent killer “.It is a twin-brother disease and both are potentially deadly. However, the one we’re discussing today is High Blood Pressure otherwise known as HYPERTENSION in medical parlance.
