Your body is trying to kill you

85% of your cholesterol comes from within!! Translation - You can eat zero cholesterol and very little fat at all and still have that vein plaque that clogs arteries and causes lethal strokes. Pretty disheartening facts. Pretty much you are just screwed unless you dish out loads of dollars for medicine that shuts down the cholesterol factory (that is on crack) part of your liver. I found option #2

Glucomannan, what is it and why should you care? Cheerios always advertises to eat fiber to lower your cholesterol. That is because fat and cholesterol in your vein binds easily to water soluble fiber. But cheerios has 1 piddly gram of it per serving. Glucomannan is the specialized mother of all fiber that originates from the white kidney bean. A dose of glucomannan has been proven to lower your cholerestol points by 21% in a month. Can't beat that for only $20 every 2 months ( http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=147360&catid=48848&trx=GFI-0-EVGR-49973&trxp1=10782&trxp2=147360&trxp3=1&trxp4=0&btrx=BUY-GFI-0-EVGR-49973 )

Beats 30 pills of lipitor for $70- 99

hey...love the title.
Essentially, apparently EVERYTHING can potentially be bad for you. People just need to really understand that it's really exercise and a healthy and moderate diet that works. Works for me! I eat like a cow!!
If you have naturally high cholesterol anything is bad for you. From salad to wheat toast to an apple. I was saying your liver (because of your DNA) makes your cholesterol high no matter what you eat
tis true.... but i think they have medication for that now, right?
