Moser focuses on the devastating consequences of untreated hypertension. Management of this public health problem has evolved over the past century; hypertension was once considered to have beneficial effects on health since the higher the pressure, the better the circulation. This rudimentary misdiagnosis along with other myths and misconceptions regarding the treatment of hypertension are discussed and debunked by the author.
