Report links workplace discrimination to high blood pressure

Adults who felt they had experienced a high level of discrimination at work were 54 percent more likely to develop high blood pressure (hypertension) than were those who reported little or no workplace discrimination, according to research published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
