Ignoring cholesterol now can have terrible consequences later on. "There are many who don't take the risk of high cholesterol nearly as seriously as they should - those who appear healthy and feel just fine, as well as those who know they have heart disease already or are at risk for it. Yet we know cholesterol makes a direct contribution to heart disease, which can bring on heart attack or stroke." Says Kirsten Whittaker, editor of the DHB.
You've lost those extra pounds... only to find that having reached your goal, keeping that weight off is so much harder than losing it was. Evidence shows that most people regain lost weight within five years. A new, very important bit of research suggests that it's not lack of willpower that makes maintaining weight loss so hard; but a persistent biological urge to eat.

We've all had moments when we've been so ravenously hungry that we gobble a meal or snack without even tasting it. Experts in the U.K. are using some pretty high tech gear (two climate controlled, whole body calorimeters, for starters) in a lab dubbed the "flab lab" to study weight... most recently looking at eating speed and if it might contribute to gaining weight.
According to another British study, the first randomized, controlled trial into the effect of aspirin on cancer, taking 2 aspirin each day for 2 years cuts the long term risk of bowel cancer by 60% in those who have a family history of the disease.
