High blood pressure (hypertension) and high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia) are two of the most common chronic diseases affecting Americans today. According to the CDC, over 115 million American adults have high blood pressure, while almost 94 million Americans who are at least 20 years old have high LDL cholesterol (the really bad kind). 

Both of these conditions wreak havoc on the cardiovascular system, so the major concern with both high blood pressure and high cholesterol is the increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US, while stroke is the fifth-highest cause.
