No sugar.

Good headline version:

Fructose Tied to Higher Blood Pressure: Study

Stupid headline version:

A Gout Drug May Help Lower High Blood Pressure Caused by a Fructose-Rich Diet

Idiots.  That wasn’t the point of the study.  The point was that the fructose caused increased blood pressure.  The gout drug was used to test the hypothesis that fructose affected blood pressure.

The gout drug isn’t the treatment for high blood pressure.

The treatment is to eat less sugar.
