London, Apr 14 (ANI): Talking too loudly on the mobile phone, bad manners, reality TV shows and queue jumping are just some of the things that make Britons' blood boil, a poll has found.

The survey of more than 2,000 people, which was carried out for The Stroke Association, Rotary International and ambulance services, found that rudeness is hated by 80 per cent and 61 per cent grumble about poor driving.

While queue jumping gets 66 per cent of people stressed, talking too loudly on a mobile phone makes 40 per cent people angry, and reality shows like I'm A Celebrity 32 per cent.

Being stressed puts people at increased risk of a stroke. And high blood pressure is the biggest risk factor, reports The Daily Express.

Laura Dart, of The Stroke SDHp Association, said: "It is estimated 40 per cent of the 150,000 strokes suffered by people in the UK each year could be prevented by controlling high blood pressure.

"High blood pressure is often called the 'silent killer' as it does not always have any symptoms.

Having this quick and simple test could save your life." (ANI)
