The United States is a country that, according to a new study, has the highest rate of blood pressure in the world.
The study, conducted by the American Heart Association, found that the national average of systolic blood pressure (SBP) for a newborn is 130/90 mmHg.
The national average for an adult is 112/87 mmHG.
According to the CDC, the highest blood pressure readings in the United States are in New York, Miami, Philadelphia, and Atlanta.
But, according the study, the states with the highest rates of infant and neonatal blood pressure are in California, Illinois, Florida, Nevada, and Texas.
The states with highest rates for adults are New Jersey, New York City, Connecticut, and New York State.
The researchers used data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to track the average SBP for babies born in the U.S. between January 1, 2010 and January 1.
The average SBPS was calculated for the states by comparing the age at delivery of babies born to mothers with and without hypertension.
The results were published online Monday in the journal Circulation.
The researchers looked at data from 4.2 million babies born between January 2010 and February 1, 2020, and found that more than 80 percent of them had a SBP above 130/ 90 mmHs in January.
This figure was highest in New Jersey (98.5 percent), followed by New York (94.3 percent), Miami (87.6 percent), Pennsylvania (76.4 percent), and Washington (71.7 percent).
But, when looking at rates of syphilis and congenital heart disease (CHD), which is the second leading cause of death in the country, the researchers found that there was a significant correlation between infant and infant blood pressure.
There were 4,637 cases of CHD in New Yorkers born between December 2010 and December 2020, according a CDC statement.
Of these cases, there were 1,902 children with CHD and 474 children without CHD.
Children with CHDs had higher rates of hypertension and a higher incidence of congenital cardiac disease (CVD), the researchers wrote.
The CDC added that infants born in states with higher rates for hypertension were more likely to have low birth weight babies, lower birth weight, and lower birthweight to 2.4 in 1,000, compared to 1.6 in 1.7 in New Zealand, 1.5 in 1 for New Jersey and 1.4 for Pennsylvania.
The other states with high rates of CHDs are California, Minnesota, and Michigan.
According to the study’s authors, there was no relationship between birth weight and the rate of hypertension in the study population.
But the researchers did note that there were differences in the rates of newborn hypertension between states.
Newborn hypertension was more common in states that had a higher percentage of Hispanics, people with a higher education level, and more recent births.
There were also differences in birth weight between states with and no hypertension.
Children born to Hispanic mothers were slightly heavier than those born to white mothers, while babies born out of wedlock had a slightly higher birth weight.
However, the study also found that people with higher blood pressure were less likely to develop hypertension later in life, as measured by a history of CHDS.
Researchers found that those with hypertension were three times more likely than people without hypertension to develop CHD by age 70.
