    The type of food you eat, your age, and the amount of exercise all play major roles in blood pressure. It has nothing to do with your weight (although the lifestyle of an overweight person can lead to high blood pressure). It's all about heart health.

    A skinny girl who drives to work, never uses the stairs, and drinks a lot of coffee or energy drinks can easily have high blood pressure. Smoking also contributes. How many skinny smokers do you know?
