Nutritional and environmental factors are now known to affect the blood pressure and pulse rate of man. The present study investigated the effect of nicotiana tabacum on these parameters. Thirty-three male Nigerians (20-68 years) living in Calabar, Nigeria were used for this study. The, subjects were treated at three different periods with snuff containing varied concentrations of Natron (0, 5g and 10g/100g of snuff) and their systolic and diastolic pressures as well as pulse rate were measured at intervals of 30 minutes up to a maximum of 90 minutes. Each subject served as his own control. There were significant and time-dependent increases in the parameters measured. In addition, the increases were more marked in the absence of Natron than in its presence.
