Our expert says:
You should look on package inserts when you buy food, don't use any product that has more than 10 g fat per 100 gram product. See http://www.heartfoundation.co.za/health/cholesterol.htm for diet guidelines.
Your cholesterol is too high and you probably need to take medication - you do get generic medications that is cheaper. You should aim for a cholesterol of about 5.
Remember, living a life crippled after a stroke or a heart attack will be much more expensive and difficult than taking the right precautions now!
