There are several factors related to health, life style, and diet that contribute to hypertension. Risk factors include atherosclerosis, older age, genetics (family history and race), obesity, salt intake, and alcohol intake. A low intake of fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and low-fat milk products (and their contributions of potassium, calcium, and magnesium) may also increase one's risk for hypertension.
