How a Plant-Based Diet Can Reduce High Blood Pressure and Cognitive Decline

When visiting the doctor for an annual exam, one of the first things the nurse practitioner or doctor will do is strap a large black band around your arm, pump it full of air, and slowly release the air while taking a reading. This is how your doctor can check the health of your blood pressure and it happens to be one of the most important indicators of overall health.
