October marks National Cholesterol Month and this year Heart UK www.heartuk.org.uk are working hard to raise our awareness of Cholesterol. The health implications of not managing our Cholesterol correctly can be catastrophic. You can find out more information regarding their ‘Let’s talk about Cholesterol!’ campaign at www.heartuk.org.uk/national-cholesterol-month/2020
We all need some Cholesterol in our bodies but too much can clog up our arteries and lead to serious health implications such as a heart attack. If you had the misfortune to be the victim of a Heart Attack or to be present when someone had a Heart Attack would you know what to do?
Heart and circulatory diseases cause more than a quarter (27 per cent) of all deaths in the UK. That’s nearly 170,000 deaths each year. An average of 460 people each day or one death every three minutes. (British Heart Foundation).
