Epidemiology of hypertension: blood pressure in blacks and whites

, : Epidemiology of hypertension: blood pressure in blacks and whites. Clinical Science 62(1): 1-6

Comparisons of black and white populations indicate that blood pressures are lower in black persons when they live in tribal or rural societies, but in response to urbanization into similar environmental influences as white persons, their blood pressures increase to as high or higher values. Further examination of the literature suggests that this effect could be due to a genetically greater susceptibility to environmental factors.
