By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Correspondent WASHINGTON (Reuters) - People with high cholesterol also have a greater risk of high blood pressure, U.S. researchers reported on Monday in one of the first studies to demonstrate that one may cause the other. A study of 3,000 men monitored for 14 years showed that those who developed the unhealthiest cholesterol levels raised their risk of hypertension by 39 percent. "There appears to be a significant association between increased...

She found that those who also had elevated CRP levels...
