High blood cholesterol is a serious problem. Along with high blood pressure and cigarette smoking, it is one of the three major modifiable risk factors for coronary heart disease. Approximately 25 percent of the adult population 20 years of age or older has high blood cholesterol levels--levels that are high enough to need intensive medical attention. More than half of all adult Americans have a blood cholesterol level that is higher than desirable.
A 10-year study by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute concluded that for every 1 percent drop in cholesterol levels, there is a 2 percent reduction in heart disease risk. This program helps you conform to the cholesterol-lowering dietary guidelines of the National Cholesterol Education Program and National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. The software includes utilities such as cholesterol profiler that evaluates your risk of heart diseases based on your blood cholesterol levels.
