Half of UK population has high cholesterol

A survey by the UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey shows that nearly half of the UK population has high cholesterol and are therefore at greater risk of heart disease. 25% of men and 20% of women are obese compared to 8% and 12% in 1987. Roughly only 1/3 exercised enough even though most thought they did.
