World Hypertension Day,2013


The salt that gives the taste to food –
Palatability,
Is better cut for long life-span,
Reduced morbidity!

The stress that causes life’s distress
Is better avoided;
So, change your temperament in life,
Reaction to all stress!

Hypertension can kill a man,
Much earlier than he dies;
Calmness of mind and exercise
Are good health’s wiser price!

“Reduce food-salt,
Halt Hypertension.”

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
