An anatomical adventure brought to you by Us

The Task

Our task was to make a meal for someone who had high Blood pressure

What's the deal with high blood pressure?

High blood pressure is a term used to describe what happens when your blood presses against the walls of your arteries too hard. This can be caused by a variety of things, but usually it is caused by heart disease and obstructions in the arteries which hinder blood flow.
