Higher Cholesterol Levels in Women

Many of us know there are health risks associated with having raised cholesterol levels - raised "bad" cholesterol, that is.

But it seems that among healthy women with no history of major illness (such as heart disease and cancer ) those who have raised cholesterol levels have a much higher risk of stroke than those with the lowest levels. More information in this article.

I had a cholesterol test about six months ago and fortunately my levels were OK. Do you know what your levels are?
