Scientists from Oxford University, in the United Kingdom, and Peking University, the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, and the Peking Union Medical College, in Beijing, China assessed data from 512,715 adults from China who enrolled in the China Kadorie Biobank initiative.

Having analyzed the information from the male population, the researchers discovered that people with these two genetic variants also had a lower risk of high blood pressure and stroke.
