Several aspects of diet have been implicated in the pathogenesis of hypertension. These include: excess salt, low K intake, excess weight, high alcohol consumption and unhealthy diet. In non-hypertensive individuals, dietary changes can delay or even prevent hypertension. The original DASH diet rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grain, legumes and low fat dairy products and low salt and red meat has been shown to lower BP in both normotensive and hypertensive subjects.
