This tissue of organic fertilizer, with the absurd (but guaranteed click-bait) title “1 weird food that KILLS blood pressure,” showed up 14 times in my email box yesterday:
“You’re going to have a stroke or a heart attack before you leave this building.”
That’s what the nurse told my dad.
She had just checked his blood pressure and it was a deadly 155/90.
When I heard the news, my mind raced back to my own blood pressure scare just a few short years before.
Thankfully, after some frantic research, I had stumbled upon an all-natural blood pressure fix that normalized my blood pressure in a matter of weeks.
Which wouldn’t help someone about to leave the building, of course, but hey, this is spam; you’re not supposed to notice the contradictions.
Incidentally, I’ve been occasionally as high as 155/90; last I looked, I wasn’t dead, or anything close to it.
I remember when they told my dad he had six months to live, tops. And sure enough, six years later, that’s what he had.
