High blood pressure symptoms include headaches, chest pain and difficult breathing. Making this takeaway diet swap could make your Indian or Chinese meal more healthy, and lower your risk of hypertension.

High blood pressure affects about one in every four UK adults, according to the NHS. The condition, which is also known as hypertension, increases your risk of some life-threatening complications, including heart attacks and strokes. The only way to know if you have high blood pressure is to get it checked, as there are often no signs that you’re affected.
But, if you have extremely high blood pressure, you could have a pounding in your chest, vision problems, and finding blood in your urine.
If you’re planning a takeaway dinner any time soon, you should consider swapping your egg-fried rice for boiled rice, according to a diet expert. Plain or boiled rice is a better nutritional option than egg-fried rice when ordering an Indian or Chinese takeaway, said @FitnessOnToast’s diet and fitness expert, Fava Nilsson.
The swap could lower the amount of salt in your meal; a risk factor for high blood pressure.
“From a nutritional point of view, the most positive change people can make to help improve their blood pressure is to reduce the salt content in their diets,” said Nilsson, who is part of the Braun Healthy Heart Panel.
“Beware when you’re cooking or eating out.
“For example, if you’re going for an Indian takeaway or Chinese, go for plain rice, not egg-fried rice.
“Equally, if you’re having a sandwich or an indulgent breakfast, go for ham instead of bacon or a poached egg with grilled vegetables.”
Following an exercise regime could also lower your risk of hypertension, said Nilsson.
If you aren’t used to going to the gym, try power walking around a park, as it’ll still provide you with lots of health benefits.
“I know everyone is limited for time, so you don’t even need to sign up to a gym. Use your own body weight to try out some simple exercises at home.
“For example: bread and butter training like push-ups, pull-ups, squats, lunges, you can do them anywhere and anytime.”
Those most likely to develop hypertension are people over 65 years old, or are overweight. People of African or Caribbean descent are also more likely to have high blood pressure. Every adult over 40 years old should get their blood pressure checked at least every five years, the NHS said. See a GP or pharmacist to check your blood pressure. You could also check your own blood pressure at home with a blood pressure monitor.

300 Level Class Page Dissolved As SHIM UCH Freshers Go On Break

It started in the early  hours of the day, around 7:36am when the previous day birthday celebrant (Ganiyu  Olamide) picture  on the group page was changed.  Lovers of the celebrants reacted and the whole  shenanigans  started on the last day of the semester. According  to a class member, he was expecting  to see messages  like farewell, journey mercy, love you, missing you already, my kiss kiss, my uncrushable candy and crush able strawberry but felt so sad reading messages  full of curses and abuses.  After so many appalling messages, one of the administrator removed everyone on the class page and shut it down.  What is the reaction of the class Governor, Deputy Governor, Class monitor, and other Elder statemen?????

Writing One Paper Is Not The Board Standard, so students should prepare for two papers per day -Pelumi Oyelami

Mr Oyelami when meeting with  the members of the  Press club, advised the students  to go and read for their examinations  and stop  being  lazy.

Students are here to read irrespective  of the arrangement  of the timetable, they should  go and read,  come to  the examination  centre and pass.

Writing two papers per day is a form  of training, writing  one paper is not the standard  with the board,so students should prepare  for two.

When the board releases their timetable, the school does not complain,  and the students  read their books, face the exam and they pass so why will they be forming  lazy in the school.  We will  maintain  the appropriate  standard  in this school.

Notwithstanding  steps has been  taking on the correction  of the examination  timetable of 200level students. It is with the Head of school to decide,i have done my part as the Academic  affair  Officer.
