Recently, I visited my doctor in Miami for a routine checkup. Everything seems to be going well and I was excited about my continued good health until... Yep, you guessed it! It was all great until the doctor noted that my blood pressure was elevated above normal and my cholesterol was out of balance. She gave me a prescription and placed me on a low cholesterol diet. She gave me a huge list of Foods to Use and Foods to Avoid.
My doctor warned: "Your blood cholesterol level has a lot to do with your chances of getting heart disease. High blood cholesterol is one of the major risk factors for heart disease. A risk factor increases your chance of getting the disease." In fact, according to my doctor, the higher your cholesterol level, the greater your risk of developing heart disease or having a heart attack or stroke. Millions die annually in the United States alone from heart disease. View this video NOW!
When there is too much cholesterol (a fat-like substance) in the blood, it builds up in the walls of the arteries. Over time this build up causes "hardening of the arteries" so the arteries become narrowed and blood flow to the heart is restricted. The blood carries oxygen to the heart, and if the blood supply to the heart is cut off, the result is a heart attack.
The problem is high blood cholesterol does not cause any symptoms, so many people are unaware that their cholesterol level is too high.
It is the silent killer! It can happen to anyone...including you! Lowering your bad cholesterol level, therefore, is important for everyone - children, young adults, middle age, and older adults; men and women with or without heart disease.

Great advice Stephen and I know exactly what you mean by it being the silent killer. I have been on tablets for abut 10 years now for this and will be on them for the rest of my life now. Thanks for sharing.
