Dr Michael Mosley: The surprising activity which can ‘significantly’ lower blood pressure


Dr Mosley explains this is also “good for his blood pressure”. And similarly to visiting the zoo, the claim is also backed by research.

The doctor said: “A study of residents in a new housing estate in Perth, Western Australia, found people who owned dogs walked 30 minutes more a week and had lower blood pressure, than those who didn’t.”

So, if you’re worried about visiting the zoo, taking your dog for a daily walk can still help lower hypertension.

And if you don’t have a dog, you can even go for a walk by yourself.
