We have been told that it is important to keep our cholesterol level low. Have you ever wondered what evidence exists to support that statement?
It turns out that there is a proven scientific basis for lowering your cholesterol.
For example researchers analyzing the data for 1,478 subjects in the Framingham Heart Study found that the longer the subjects had an elevated cholesterol the greater their likelihood of developing heart disease. In fact for each decade after age 35 that they had elevated cholesterol their coronary risk increased by almost 40%
This is just one of many published reports that relate elevated cholesterol levels to vascular disease.
