Date:6/10/2009

Dr. Michael Roizen - Co-Founder of RealAge and Co-Author of the YOU Book Series - Urges America to Get the Real Inside Info on High Blood Pressure and Aim Lower

SAN DIEGO, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- A new survey released today shows that 3 out of 4 (75%) adults with high blood pressure are not at all familiar with the role of the renin system(1) -- a key regulator of blood pressure in the body.(2) Yet, about 9 out of 10 adults with high blood pressure (89%) both believe the condition is a cause for concern and want to understand what is going on in their body that is causing it.(1) The Omnibus survey, sponsored by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, was conducted by Harris Interactive(R) among more than 2,400 US adults ages 18+, more than 700 of whom said they have high blood pressure.(3)

To address this knowledge gap and help Americans get their blood pressure under control, RealAge has partnered with Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation to develop an online educational program on high blood pressure. Through this program, RealAge co-founder Dr. Michael Roizen, known for helping America live healthier lives, unlocks the science and arms the public with information about the underlying causes of high blood pressure, risks associated with the condition, and important tools to help manage it.

"High blood pressure -- a real national health epidemic -- is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, the number 1 cause of death in the US. There are more than 850,000 cardiovascular-related deaths annually in the US,"(4) said Michael Roizen, MD, co-founder of RealAge.com. "Your high blood pressure number is the second most important number, next to, perhaps your spouse's birthday. Know your numbers and aim lower -- decrease your blood pressure. Go to www.RealAge.com or speak with your physician to learn how."
