Depends: So many variables. Not an easy answe for this. Genetics is one aspect, u'r environment is another-pollution-less the better, smoking, etc..; stress is a big one, u'r diet-should be low in salt, and u'r Body Mass Index should be between 19-23 ideally; exercise is important too, helping control u'r Blood pressure, cholesterol as is medications doctors prescribe for the condition.
