A lot (I mean a LOT) of unsupported "evidence" as to various protocols to reduce high BP in risk populations (not the everyday layman with no BP problems, but AT RISK populations).

Take coffee for example. It does have good levels of magnesium so when it is stated that coffee is good to drink because of its magnesium levels (which are moderate compared to many other foods), that sounds great. Except that magnesium has very little beneficial impact on high BP.

Actually the amount of magnesium in a cup of brewed regular coffee is pretty minimal... like about 7mg per 8 oz. cup (other sources tested at magnesium as low as 3 mg per 100 gram serving)...

Magnesium impact on BP....

Note how games are played. This site says that magnesium is VITAL for BP levels, but the link they provide does NOT say that!

http://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Magnesium-HealthProfessional/

So what do REAL studies say?

http://m.hyper.ahajournals.org/content/36/1/137.full

Now this covers ONE topic out of several offered. Yet there are similar problems with most (yes, potassium DOES improve BP, but bananas are not the highest source and are too loaded with carbs to be healthy).

How many other topics can be researched (really researched) and dismantled??? Simply going through schools teaching outdated nutrition and physiology and getting a bunch of initials behind your name (and having a family history that screams of GENETIC causations) does not make one an "expert"!
