Why don't women prioritize cholesterol?

Filed under:

Here are some scary statistics for you, especially considering that heart disease is the #1 killer of women:
  • Only 1/3 of women know their current cholesterol levels
  • Twice as many women know what they weighed in high school than know their current cholesterol levels
9 out of 10 women are aware that high cholesterol can cause build-up of plaque in the arteries, so what's the deal? Why don't women seem to care or take their cholesterol seriously? Do you know what you weighed in high school? Do you know what your cholesterol is? For me I admit it's yes and no. And yeah, there's something wrong with this picture.
