Are genetics the only reason for high blood pressure among certain hispanic populations?

ories in detail during his presentation at the spring conference of the American Physiological Society (APS), being held in San Francisco from February 20-23, 2002.

Dr. Mendible states that environment may be a key factor in high blood pressure and recommends that an increase in physical activity and a reduction in smoking and use of salt become key parts to improving the health of Hispanic adults. This advice may also help to reduce the incidence of high blood pressure among Hispanics in the US, where the disease affects almost one in four Hispanic males and approximately one in five Hispanic females. The concern about high blood pressure is related to the fact that it can lead to heart attack and premature death.

Moreover, he and his laboratory colleagues are also working on pharmacogenetics. Pharmacogenetics is the process by which the patients own DNA is used to perfect the medication that is best suited to the individuals personal genetic makeup. Pharmacogenetics is expected to become the standard of care for prescribing medications in the future, eliminating the "one medication for all" approach we use today.
