I just came across the same question I was looking for. My cholesterol level is bad and I recently got my blood analysis to prove it. The doctor was all about eat healthy, maybe light jogging and stuff but how am I supposed to know what to eat, maybe it wont affect my body since no two are the same. So I can see that people here have made some good points... anyways try to read about some effective newbielink: [nonactive] that can help you reduce your bad cholesterol. I hope you see this message after such long time.

Why bother? The correlation between cholesterol and premature death is much weaker than the correlation between statins and serious degeneration of all sorts of functions. We need cholesterol to make a whole lot of other stuff. If the level is abnormally high, it means that something else is wrong. Treat the cause, not the symptom.
