Elementary 34: Let’s Take Your Blood Pressure

MP3 Audio (Lesson) | MP3 Audio (Dialog)

Looks like in this lesson we learn that by eating less salt and by drinking less coffee, chances are that our blood pressure will improve. At least that is what we hope, and now that hope can be expressed in Portuguese too.
