Unhealthy lifestyles include exercise <3.5 hours/week at moderate intensity, diet in bottom four quintiles of the DASH score, BMI ≥25 kg/m2, not moderate alcohol consumption (moderate: 0.1–10 g alcohol/d), and use of non-narcotic analgesic medications at least once per week. Multivariable adjusted relative risk estimated from Cox proportional hazards models adjusted for age, ethnicity, and family history of hypertension, smoking status (never smoker, former smoker, current smoker: 1–14, 15–24, or ≥25 cigarettes/d), supplemental folic acid intake, and oral contraceptive use.
