Correct Answer a

the greatest impact to decrease BP is decreased alcohol intake..
cessation of smoking is associated with decreased cardiovascular risk..
decreased red meat consumption is also associated with decreased in BP but not as strong as decreased alcohol intake

UW says:

Greatest impact is with weight reduction by 5-20 mm of Hg.

Limiting alcohol intake to 2 drinks per day reduces the systolic B.P by 2-4 mm of Hg.

Smoking cessation does not significantly decrease B.P.But decreases the overall cardiovascular risk.
