also if anyone wants to edit it or help me with a concluding sentence that can lead into how it causes heart failure
High blood pressure affects many areas of the body but is most 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 arteries to become stiff and to allow a buildup of plaque on the surrounding walls. The buildup will cause the arties to become narrower which can ultimately lead to a blockage.
ummm no, your paragraph is not correct. Blood pressure is a great deal more complicated than that, and the damage it does is universal, not just primarily to the heart, but to every single major organ system. Inflammation causes plaque build up in the heart, not "hardening of the arteries" or high blood pressure. The greatest danger associated with elevated blood pressure is actually stroke, not heart attack. You need to go back and do a lot more studying, you don't have your information correct.
just to respond to this…
how come everywhere i go i always read the same thing, which is:
High blood pressure increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, eye damage, congestive heart failure and fatty buildups in arteries called atherosclerotic plaques.
also this is a 7 page paper and this is only one paragraph
