Hypertension is the main disease threatening human health, which harms lots of people in the world. Currently, every country has a rate 10%-20% with hypertension. It causes headache, dizziness, chest distress and other uncomfortable symptoms, impacting study, work and life. The most important is that hypertension would lead to pathological changes of brain, heart, vessels and kidney, as well as disability and death. In order to raise attention to hypertension, initiate healthier life style to prevent hypertension and emphases on the importance of hypertension treatment, World Hypertension League set May 17th as the World Hypertension Day starting from 2005.
