I am 50% Croatian, and I have studied the following.
The Croats have some of the highest cholesterol & blood pressure of any race on earth.
They ALSO have some of the highest longevity.

I have found that watching/monitoring your CRP (C-reactive protein) is more beneficial than watching your cholesterol.
I also has found that, as you age. your blood pressure increases to compensate for the loss of elasticity in your blood vessels.
Therefore you should not try to maintain the B.P. of younger people. Higher B.P. is not necessarily bad.

Pharmaceuticals are made for profit more than healing. It is a well documented fact that more people die each year from "legal" drugs than street drugs.
Check your pills when you first get them, in the presence of the pharmacist . If they don't look like what you have been taking, question the pharmacist. My mom, at 90 years old did just that & it saved her life !!
