An analysis of data from 13 studies found that people who exercised more than four hours a week during their leisure time were 19% less likely to develop high blood pressure than those who did less than one hour of recreational exercise a week. The findings, published in the journal Hypertension, showed that the more exercise one gets during leisure time, the lower the risk of hypertension. A similar link was not found in people who were physically active at work.
