According to a recent report put out by www.msnbc.com, new studies show that many men may be able to lower their risk of acquiring the most aggressive form of prostate cancer if they keep their cholesterol levels in the healthy range.
The report states that “men whose cholesterol was under 200 had less than half the risk of developing high-grade prostate tumors compared to men with high cholesterol.”
While having high cholesterol is typically a consequence of aging, young people are not in the clear either. Luckily there are preventive measures that anyone can do to help lower their cholesterol levels.
There are four basic ways to help maintain a healthy cholesterol level:
1. Eat a healthy diet
3. Lose weight
4. Take medicine – in some cases
Some people will need to implement only one of these, while others will require a combination of these tips to help regulate their cholesterol.
