As a retired cardiologist, I concur that this is something for you to watch and monitor. We used to think it was a benign conditicon , but it often indicates a transition to sustained hypertension as you pointed out. Logically this makes sense. If you, or anyone else with WCS, stresses about seeing a doctor, or "white coat", it is likely you stresss about many other things as well.

I am not buying this study. As with other similar "observational" type studies, correlation does not equal causation. Yes, there are some toxins in fish but maybe the people who ate more fish were also ones who spent more time in the sun. Did they control for family history, use of sunscreens, and fair complexions.? That;s my point.
