High blood cholesterol is a major cause of coronary heart disease leading to heart attacks. It is established beyond doubt that lowering elevated cholesterol level decreases the risk of heart attacks. Studies show that every 1% reduction in cholesterol level leads to 2% reduction in the risk of heart attacks. The theme of this book is preventing coronary heart disease by recognizing, modifying and reducing the risk due to high blood cholesterol. While many of us are aware of the risk, few really know whether they are in the high, medium or low risk category. This book takes away your fears but informs the likely damages caused by high cholesterol, and shows you the way to counter them. It tells you how simple changes in diet and lifestyle can bring cholesterol within normal limits. Informative, authoritative and comprehensive - the book is backed by the latest in research, surgical remedies and medicinal cures
