Have You Checked Your Blood Pressure Lately?
A big risk factor for stroke and/or heart attack is high blood pressure.

Do you know your blood pressure numbers?

Most people will probably answer no. But that's a huge mistake - even if you consider yourself to be relatively healthy.

In fact knowing your blood pressure levels is far more important than knowing your credit score or how much money is in your bank account because it could mean the difference between life and death.

Join special guest Dr. Gary Goodman to find out what you can do to keep your blood pressure normal and healthy and prevent serious health issues down the road.
