    Don’t Have High Cholesterol? You Still Might Need a Statin
    Statins are medicines that reduce the amount of LDL cholesterol the liver produces. They also help lower the amount of LDL cholesterol already in your blood. Some statins can reduce inflammation as well.
    Get Moving—Even While Binge-Watching TV—To Reduce Your Blood Clot Risk

    A healthy diet is a cornerstone of good health. And research has found another reason why: An important mineral may help keep blood pressure at normal levels.
    ‘Silent’ Heart Attacks Are Common
    Up to half of all heart attacks may not have the typical symptoms of crushing chest pain, shortness of breath, and cold sweats. Instead, they may be “silent,” researchers say.
    Caffeine and Heart Rhythm: Moderation May Be OK
