The interesting fact that compelled me to record this interview: Hypertension, the medical term for high blood pressure, is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Among Latinos who experienced a stroke, 72 percent had high blood pressure, compared to 66 percent in non-Latino whites.  Carrying extra weight is also a key risk factor for Hispanics. Seventy-five percent of Mexican-American men and 72 percent of women age 20 and older are overweight or obese.
