Hypertension is an extremely common lifestyle related health problem in the western world.  A fruit and vegetable rich diet is associated with a protection against hypertension. One part of the beneficial effect of these dietary elements is their high potassium content. This presentation will relate the responses in the kidney to high potassium intake with a hypertension protective effect.
