Louisville may be home of the Louisville Slugger baseball bat, but it's not exactly scoring grand slams when it comes to nutrition. Residents are reluctant to eat inflammation-fighting fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. This may be why they're stressed, not sleeping well, and suffering from high blood pressure. To ease hypertension, residents can start by eating bananas, cantaloupe, or even dried peaches. They're excellent sources of blood-pressure-friendly minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
