Michigan researchers said that they have found a new factor that may contribute to high blood pressure in adults under age 56: higher, but still normal, levels of lead in the blood. Persons with high blood pressure also tended to have low levels of calcium in their diet and zinc in their blood, said Dr. Robert L. Schmouder, one of the researchers at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.
