Many epidemiological cross-sectional studies have confirmed that alcohol drinking is related to high blood pressure.
However, the impact of alcohol drinking on high blood pressure in the general population including older people has only been reported on in a few studies.
The association between alcohol drinking and blood pressure or the prevalence of hypertension was examined using cross-sectional data of 4795 men and 6102 women aged 30-94, randomly selected from the Japanese population in 1980.
The response rates were 74 and 84% for men and women, respectively.
