Cardiovascular Risk

A healthy heart is vital to longevity. In recent years evidence has shown that preventing heart disease is not simply a matter of driving cholesterol levels down. Half of all heart attacks occur in people with normal cholesterol levels. New research shows that while cholesterol is important, it is only one of a variety of bio-markers that indicates cardiovascular risk.
