Question by Adriana: How does high blood pressure speed up plaque buildup in arteries?
Could someone please explain to me how a high blood pressure flowing in arteries can speed up or make plaque build up in your arteries? This isn’t making sense to me. I thought it had more to do with lipids/cholesterol…

You are right about the cholesterol. But don’t forget high blood pressure is like a pump pushing thru blood thicken by cholesterol harder to pus thicker the blood gets starting to stick to the walls of the arteries … Get the picture? :). —/ penny
