The South Korean researchers examined the effects of both hypertension (HTN, or high blood pressure) and binge drinking on the risk of mortality from cardiovascular disease.
They also looked at hypertension and binge drinking separately with regards to mortality (death) risk.
The researchers studied 6,100 South Korean citizens from Kangwha County who were equal to or over the age of 55 years.
The Korean researchers used data from these participants from March 1985 to December 31, 2005 -- a period of 20.8 years.
