I don't think that's true at all. I'm sure that your 99.9% of doctors are well aware that high blood pressure is a genetic disorder. Certainly diet and lifestyle can aggravate it, including being overweight, having a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, drinking too much alcohol, and yes, eating too much sodium. All of those things factor into the picture.
