my mother went to the doctor today. They told her that her blood pressure was out the roof! that the doctor wouldn't be surprised if she had a stroke right now. i asked my mother if it could be from her drinking. she drinks all day everyday. rum and sprite all day. and she smokes like a chimney. and she said no. It runs in the family so she blames it on that. My grandfather has high blood pressure and he was an alcoholic and a heavy smoker. Do you honestly think it is hereditary? or it was just their drinking and smoking?Answer Question
High blood pressure is hereditary, but when someone smokes like that & drinks it does not help.
