Just one more reason why I belong in space

Blood volume shifts but blood pressure lowers in long-duration weightlessness.

Finding:

The team of researchers found that the shift of blood and fluid from the lower to the upper body caused by weightlessness was much higher than previously thought. The blood volume burden to the heart was also more than expected despite the heart rate remaining the same. At the same time, blood pressure was considerably reduced by 10 mmHg, which corresponds to the effect of normal blood pressure medication against high blood pressure.

Conclusion: Since I have high blood pressure naturally (even when I’m not overweight), it is clear God wanted me to be an astronaut.
