Children and adults have become increasingly overmedicated, and although some drugs might be necessary, there are certainly other options, including lifestyle change, that could help restore wellness and lower cholesterol levels.
An approach to health care that defines prevention as pill popping is purely propaganda coming from the pharmaceutical sector. Instead, the focus should be on proper nutrition, physical activity and weight management.
In an effort to lower cholesterol, a good first step might be high-fiber foods:
- Berries and apples
- High-fiber, low-sugar cereals
- Whole-wheat pasta
- Peanut butter, which has high levels of omega-3 fatty acids
