I woke up early to read an article about hypertension and how it affects our health. One of our church leaders thought it would be good to make an appeal to our church to come and hear one of the local doctors talk about the effects of hypertension. The article named 5 factors that contribute to the diagnosis of hypertension in men. I was called to attend to a member who complained of chest pain so I did not get the chance to share. These are the factors: Diet, obesity, genes, no exercise and stress. I believe these are our distractions.
