Being of a certain age, and a slightly high BMI (Just and I mean just over 30, not even 31!) a blood test recently showed a slight elevated cholesterol. Apparently I am a high risk because my father died at 62 of a heart attack, though he'd been a smoker for many years which I'm not. The GP is threatening to write a prescription for statins unless my cholesterol comes down a bit in next three months. I say write as I'm unlikely to actually take them. Anyway, main point of query, do any of these magic cholesterol busting yoghurts and spreads actually work or am I going to have to lay off the pies?
