People with higher systolic blood pressure had a greater risk of bleeding strokes and stable angina (chest pain), while those with higher diastolic blood pressure were more likely to be diagnosed with an abdominal aortic aneurysm. An abdominal aortic aneurysm is an overstretched, weakened section in the body's main artery, that occurs in the belly. If it bursts, it can cause serious bleeding and even death.
To reach their conclusion, researchers analyzed the health records of more than 1 million people in England who were aged 30 and older and who did not have heart disease. They were followed for an average of 5.2 years.
"Our findings do not support the widely held assumptions that systolic and diastolic pressure have similar strong associations with the occurrence of all cardiovascular [heart] diseases across a wide age range," lead investigator Dr. Eleni Rapsomaniki, from The Farr Institute for Health Informatics Research in London, England, said in a journal news release.

According to humanist psychologist Abraham Maslow, our actions are motivated in order achieve certain needs.
The lowest levels of the pyramid are made up of the most basic needs, while the more complex needs are located at the top of the pyramid. Needs at the bottom of the pyramid are basic physical requirements including the need for food, water, sleep, and warmth. Once these lower-level needs have been met, people can move on to the next level of needs, which are for safety and security.
As people progress up the pyramid, needs become increasingly psychological and social. Soon, the need for love, friendship, and intimacy become important. Further up the pyramid, the need for personal esteem and feelings of accomplishment take priority. Like Carl Rogers, Maslow emphasized the importance of self-actualization, which is a process of growing and developing as a person in order to achieve individual potential.
