The Role of Hypertension
Description:
This short essay was part of a collection of papers on the prevention and control of heart disease originally presented at the eighty-seventh annual meeting of the American Public Health Association in October 1959. In it, Freis argued that hypertension was a major contributing factor in heart disease and antihypertensive drugs offered considerable prophylactic value in its treatment.
