During the study, experts conducted a meta-analysis of 24 different studies, in which about 54 thousand people from Europe took part , USA, Africa and Asia.

This information was reported by Medicalanswers, reports URA-Inform.  

Scientists studied information about the difference in blood pressure between the left and right arm and tracked the number of deaths, heart attacks and strokes that occurred over a ten year period.

Scientists determined that the difference in blood pressure measured in the right and left arms may indicate a high risk of stroke, heart attack and indicate imminent death.

As it turns out, a significant difference between the systolic (upper) blood pressure readings in the two arms can indicate narrowing or stiffness of the arteries, which can affect circulation.

Every additional millimeter of mercury difference was found to increase the risk of angina, heart attack or stroke by one percent over the next 10 years. At the same time, a difference of 10 millimeters of mercury is the upper limit of normal.

Recall that it was previously reported that products that are more harmful to the body than tobacco were named: scientists warned of the consequences.
