Health Knowledge

A bit obscure, but here's a brief bit about what people know about their own health -- specifically about their cholesterol.  Survey says: only a third know their own cholesterol level.

Shamefully, I don't know mine.  At least not lately.  The survey found only two-out-of-five know high levels can cause  atherosclerosis (plaque buildup in the arteries).  For you non-math majors, that means three folks out of five don't know this.

I did at least know that one (he said, sitting in his office chair, letting plaque build up).
