Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill surveyed close to 14,000 adults to find that many young adults (24- to 32-year) are victims of high blood pressure, medically known as hypertension.
What is further alarming is, more than 50% of them are unaware of their condition.

Experts underlined the importance of getting hypertension under control which must be the first priority for these young adults.
