Being overweight as an adolescent and an adult, or gaining weight during adulthood, raises the risk of high blood pressure, according to a Columbia University study in the journal Hypertension. Researchers said the data "provide further support to the prevailing paradigm of prevention, which emphasizes prevention of risk factors early in life to reduce the impact of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus, in mid and later life."
