CHOLESTEROL: Your body weight is only one contributing factor when it comes to high cholesterol. You can be overweight with normal cholesterol levels whereas a slender person can have elevated levels. Genes, thyroid function, life style play an important role. Even if you have a healthy, normal weight, it’s vital to check your cholesterol levels regularly.
HEART ATTACK: It’s commonly believed that you’ll feel chest pain if you’re having a heart attack. While this may often be true, it’s not always the case. Shortness of breath, pain in your arms, neck, jaw, sweating, feeling extremely tired or anxious can also be signs that you are having a heart attack. Especially with a family history of heart disease and high cholesterol. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. among men and women.
COLON CANCER: The myth is that colon cancer is a man’s disease. Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in women. Beginning at age 50, everyone should get a colonoscopy screening.
