Overview

“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.

Will you?

Will your spouse?

High cholesterol claims thousands of lives every year. The really sad thing is that it’s treatable as long as you don’t ignore it.

The chances of you not having this condition are slim to none. Most Americans do have cholesterol. It’s a natural part of our physical makeup. Like everything in nature, it becomes a problem when there is an imbalance.

Sadly, thousands of men and women ignore the warning signs until it’s too late, like our friend Joe.

Do you know the warning signs for high cholesterol? Are you aware of your LDL and HDL levels? Do you even know what they mean?

If you don’t have a clue what we are talking about, you are definitely high risk for this potential killer.

§ What can I eat?
