Women with low BP look two years younger

London, Nov. 7 : A study has claimed that women having lowest cardiovascular risk look two years younger than those in other groups.

According to the findings of a small study at Leiden University, which includes industry scientists from the multinational company Unilever, 650 participants were broken into groups according to their risk of heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular conditions, the Independent reported.

Dr David Gunn, senior scientist at Unilever said that they found that the feature in the face that blood pressure was linked to was not skin wrinkles but likely what we term as the 'sag' in the face.

He said that the exciting thing is further investigations will enable exact pin-pointing of the feature in the face that signposts an individual's blood pressure.
