As someone who is a little bit younger than the rest of the staff here at Lite I think it’s safe to say I don’t eat as healthy as I should. I tend to eat a lotttt of garbage and junk in my diet, But I guess I’m not much different than people my age.

According to a new study from the USA Today, 20 percent of young adults are battling high blood pressure. Researchers from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill found that men and women between the ages of 24 and 32 are dealing with high blood pressure, even though high blood pressure seems like a condition for "old people."

Results have heart experts (and myself)worried because, left unchecked and untreated, high blood pressure rarely goes away. It actually gets worse down the line. Maybe I’ll consider this the next time I grab a huge can of Red Bull, and eat a double cheese burger.
