ReasonIsNot theIssue: High blood pressure is a behavior ; the more chronic, the more the rate of cardiovascular events ; decline in kidney function ↑es. It does not matter if people "think" they know the basis or not; same behavior. The impact of increased heart rates is less clear, though some (minority) "believe" we may have some unclear limit on available heart beats. Best strategy, .Confront the bases of the fears!
