It is evident from the accumulation of articles in the scientific literature, that many factors influence the level of blood pressure. However, with our present knowledge, the cause of essential high and low blood pressures remains quite obscure.
The purpose of this investigation has been to study the normal and abnormal blood pressures among university students and to ascertain the effect of exercise upon them from a comparative standpoint. A history and physical examination are obtained on each entering student. This study included the observation of 15,500 male students at the University of Illinois from 1935 to 1939. Those
