New Study finds higher diastolic heart rate linked to breast cancer vs. those with normal blood pressure.
A new prospective study finds that high diastolic (the bottom number of a blood pressure reading), greater than >85 mmHg, in postmenopausal women is associated with a significantly (up to 73%) higher risk of developing breast cancer vs. those with normal blood pressure.
It is hypothesized that “high local estrogen production (common in postmenopausal breast tissue) and altered blood flow in breast tissue may contribute to chronic local inflammation, cell proliferation stimulation, and tumor micro-environment enhancement” that can promote cancer.
