Having high cholesterol can be hereditary, but there are other things that increase it as well. Having a diet high in fats also clogs arteries & vessels. Having high blood pressure, a sedentary lifestyle, or being overweight increase cholesterol. Decrease all known causes. Eating oatmeal everyday is also great. Have heart healthy meals. Increase fiber, decrease fats, especially animal fats in your diet. Make sure to exercise daily.
