High blood pressure affects a third of adults and, if left untreated, greatly raises the chances of heart attacks, strokes and other potentially fatal conditions.

But new evidence suggests that dramatic swings in blood pressure can have an equally devastating effect on health.

Experts are warning that long-term variation in blood pressure – over months or years – can increase the risk of early death by 35 per cent, while the chances of a stroke or heart attack increase by 42 per cent compared to those with stable readings.

Stress fuels cancer by triggering a 'master switch' gene which allows the disease to spread, according to new research.

The 'unexpected' discovery could lead to the development of drugs that target the protein and stop tumours spreading to other organs and causing death.

Stress has long been linked to many forms of the disease including breast cancer and prostate cancer, but the reason has remained a mystery.

Now a team at Ohio State University say our own bodies help turn cancer against us by turning on a 'master switch' gene known as ATF3 which is expressed in response to stressful conditions in all types of cells.
