The Silent Killer: Hypertension

The Silent Killer: Hypertension

There is a silent killer named hypertension that has been a huge rock in the shoe of many across North America and abroad. It has little to no symptoms in most cases and has easily tricked many into thinking they are healthy when they are not.

Hypertension is consistently highly blood pressure (higher than 140 over 90) and puts added stresses on the heart by forcing it to work harder to push blood through constricted blood vessels. It causes stress on the artery walls during this process as well. Over time, these factors can go on to cause heart attack, stroke and even sudden cardiac arrest. The black community and the obese are the most impacted by this deadly silent disease. Hypertension can run in the family, but it doesn’t have to if everyone in the family runs. Here are a few other ways to fight the silent killer and live a longer healthier life: Read more »

Four Reasons To Check Your Credit Today

Four Reasons to Check Your Credit Today

1-Make sure utilization rates are accurate

*Credit card companies don’t always update Equifax and Transunion with your new credit limits which then alters your utilization rate which then alters your credit score. For example, if your credit limit is $1000 and you use $600 of it, your $600 balance would be equivalent to a 60% utilization rate.

If Equifax is not made aware of the change in the limit, your inaccurate utilization rate would Read more »
