Barber shops check blood pressure

Great idea for promoting men's health.

Some barber shops now offer to check people's blood pressure.

We men are less likely than women to visit our physicians regularly, and so we are less likely to be aware of our own "silent" health problems (like high blood pressure).

However, almost all of us men get our hair cut regularly. Some barber shops are trying to help men by offering to measure our blood pressure, while we're in the barber's chair:


“Under the twinkling trees was a table covered with Guatemalan fabric, roses in juice jars, wax rose candles from Tijuana and plates of food — Weetzie's Vegetable Love-Rice, My Secret Agent Lover Man's guacamole, Dirk's homemade pizza, Duck's fig and berry salad and Surfer Surprise Protein Punch, Brandy-Lynn's pink macaroni, Coyote's cornmeal cakes, Ping's mushu plum crepes and Valentine's Jamaican plantain pie."

from Witch Baby, Francesca Lia Block, 1991
