is this better
High blood pressure affects many areas of the body and can be extremely harmful to the heart. High blood pressure is a main reason for heart attacks. Heart attacks are caused when oxygen does not reach the heart as it is supposed to and when the blood flow to the heart is blocked. Coronary arteries are the blood vessels that bring oxygen-rich blood that the heart needs to function to the heart. High blood pressure can cause the lining of the arterial walls to become damaged which can then lead to a buildup of plaque on the surrounding walls. The buildup will cause the arteries to become narrower which can ultimately lead to a blockage. Blocking of the blood and oxygen from the arteries to the heart will ultimately lead to a heart attack which causes permanent damage to the heart.
i did more research and everywhere i read the same thing which says:
Although it seldom produces symptoms, the intense pounding of blood gradually damages the artery walls. Small arteries are especially vulnerable. The walls respond by thickening and losing their elasticity and strength. As a result, less blood can pass through them, depriving surrounding tissues of oxygen and nutrients.
so is it true or not?
