Hawaii. Not just daily walk or controlling salt in your diet, learning some Hula dance steps can also help you lower blood pressure, find researchers.

Native Hawaiians who participated in a blood-pressure-lowering programme incorporating their cultural dance of hula lowered their blood pressure more than those who received standard education on diet and exercise.
