"Are You Or A Loved One Poised To Become A Statistic?"
It's that frantic hour. You've put in a full day at work, battled the crowds at the grocery store, picked up your three kids from daycare and just begun preparing the evening meal.
The kids are being. . .well, typical kids. "Mom, Billy took my crayon," "did not," he replies. Above the clamor you hear a persistent ringing of the doorbell. Drying your hands you manage to make your way to the door while dodging kids, toys and coats on the floor.
You open the door. Your blood runs cold when you see the state trooper on the front step. Before he opens his mouth to speak, somehow you know. Panic, fear and grief. . .gut wrenching grief, as the adrenaline surges through your body.
"No, no, no" you sob as the officer begins his painful report. "I am so sorry Mrs. Jones, but there's been an accident. Apparently your husband had a heart attack while driving home. . .is there anyone we can call?"
In the blink of an eye your entire life is turned upside down. It isn't until much later when it finally sinks in. After the funeral. After the friends and family have all departed and you are alone. . .totally, utterly alone.
Glancing around the kitchen you see the note on the refrigerator, "Joe, don't forget to make a doctor's appointment for a checkup." Sadly, he'll never have the chance.
Joe has become a statistic. He is now one of the 107 million American adults who had a blood cholesterol level high enough to require medical advice. Unfortunately, he didn't get the chance to beat the odds.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
WHAT IS CHOLESTROL, LDL & HDL?
Cholesterol has been around for thousands of years. It's a
natural function of the human body. The modern story of cholesterol and how it affects us today, actually began during a government study in 1951.
The Pentagon sent pathologists to Korea to examine the bodies of servicemen who lost their lives during the war. Autopsies were conducted on 2,000 soldiers.
The results were astounding to the medical community of that time. Normally, no one under 35 dies of coronary heart disease. Remember, this was 1951!
More than 75 percent of the soldier had yellow deposits of atherosclerotic plaque on their artery walls. The average age of these soldiers was 21 contradicting the assumption that such artery clogging deposits were only prevalent in older men.
The results of the Army pathologists rocked the medical community. Prior to these autopsies, doctors had no idea how early the process of heart disease began.
Not long after this discovery, a name was given to the major contributor to the buildup of plaque and to heart disease risk - cholesterol. More recent studies have shown that for every 1 percent drop in cholesterol levels, there is a 2 percent decrease in the risk of a heart attack.
Since those original studies, the risk of heart disease stemming
from cholesterol has exploded. In 2002 it was estimated that 107 million American adults now have a blood cholesterol level high enough to require medical advice. Unfortunately, the numbers keep rising.
Despite this epidemic problem, there is good news. You can do something about the problem and that's what this guide is all about. In plain English, we will take a laymen's look at cholesterol, the causes, effects and what you can do to reverse the negative impact it has on your personal health.
