Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, December 7, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 High blood I South In short I Hospital investigation begins major Canadian killer up a( Taber CARDSTON (HNS) If people were made aware of the dangers of high blood pressure, strokes could be reduced by 37 per cent, heart attacks by 21 per cent and heart failure by 75 per cent, D. Silverberg, a physicians with the Alberta Kidney Founda- tion said recently. Speaking to the annual convention at Edmonton of the Alberta Hospital Auxiliary Association, Dr. Silverberg said "a patient with kidney trouble and high blood pressure is in serious trouble." He said high blood pressure kills five per cent of the pop- 'ulation prematurely. Reatha Stoddard of Card- ston, the association's recording secretary, told aux- iliary members here that a brief is now before the provin- cial government seeking funds for an education program on the problems of high blood pressure. Dr. Silverberg is assistant professor of medicine at the University of Alberta and national chairman of the high, blood pressure committee of the Canadian Kidney Foun- dation. A national high blood pressure program could save a year on medical care costs, he said. Uncontrolled high blood pressure is responsible for the majority of kidney failure cases. Twenty six per cent of deaths is caused by high blood pressure, higher than deaths caused by car accidents. Mrs. Stoddard said 101 delegates representing 52 aux- iliaries attended the conven- tion.
