Research shows irritating little brothers can raise your blood pressure

New research shows that irritating little brothers really can raise your blood pressure. The study, which was carried out by Brandeis University in Massachusetts, shows that younger siblings behaving badly can actually affect the health of older siblings, with little brothers proving to be the most pestilent, raising blood pressure by an irritating 5.9 per cent. But little sisters don’t get off the hook either, because they also raise the levels by a fairly pesky 3.8 per cent. Unfortunately, there were no results to show how much parents have their blood pressure raised by children who won’t stop fighting. We think that would be much more interesting...
