74 million Americans (about 1 in every 6 adults) have high cholesterol—a significant risk factor for both heart disease and stroke, which are the leading causes of death in the United States.

High cholesterol itself has no symptoms. Screening is the key to detection and therefore plays an important role in the prevention of heart disease.

A healthy diet can play a part in lowering cholesterol and keeping your heart healthy. Montmorency tart cherries are delicious as a juice or in baked goods. Pecans are a versatile way to get healthy fats and can be made into everything from sweet granola to savory dip. Mangoes are available year round and great for satisfying a sweet tooth!
