Medical literature puts hypertension as a condition linked to genetics. But a new field in medicine is looking beyond genetics when it comes to many diseases. This field is called Epigenetics. Soon, we may be looking at learning how to turn on/off our genetic markings by including proper nutrition, reducing stress and practicing other health promoting activities that will influence positively DNA expression. In other words, we will not have to blame our genes because the capability to turn on/off diseases is believed to be pretty much in our hands as more scientific evidence demonstrates this world of epigenetics. Eating for your genetic structure comes to mind. I suggest reading this book to help you: "The APO-E diet" by Pamela Mc Donald http://www.apoegenediet.com/
