Association of Fried Food Intake With Prehypertension and Hypertension: The Filipino Women's Diet and Health Study

Sticking to a diet high in fried food can trigger the onset of pre-hypertension and hypertension in women.

Pre-hypertension is defined as systolic blood pressure value of 120-139 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure value of 80-89 mmHg and hypertension is defined as systolic blood pressure values of ≥ 140 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure values of ≥ 90 mmHg. This study examined the influence of regular ingestion of fried foods on the incidence of pre-hypertension and hypertension in women. Researchers compared the blood pressure of consumers and non-consumers of fried foods in a group made up of 428 Filipino women. 

Researchers discovered that participants on high fried food diet were more prone to having pre-hypertension and hypertension than their colleagues who refrained from eating these foods. This study provides further evidence that larger intake of fried foods may raise the risk of pre-hypertension and hypertension in women.
