Their eBay shop is quite good for electronics

Good timing just found out I've got high blood pressure 160 over 114 and high cholesterol

Their advice for healthy eating is garbage. Do yourself a favour look elsewhere

I have slightly raised levels of blood pressure and cholesterol, even though I have been vegetarian for 30 years, always eaten well and train seven days a week!

Last December I had to go to Papworth for heart surgery and the cardiologist told me that I ‘got away with one there’! Two complete occlusions (blockages) in the artery that is nicknamed ‘Widowmaker’.

Thing is with heart problems is that many people don’t realise they have an issue, up to the point where they keel over. Don’t assume you are okay because you feel fine, or keep yourself reasonably fit. Particularly if you are male and over 40, you should get your blood pressure and cholesterol checked every few years.

Whole heartedly agree, sorry no pun intended! I've just buried my head knowing I already previously had high bp two years ago! I'm a coward when it comes to anything medical, especially to do with having blood tests as I'm needle phobic, I've been known to pass out, either that or literally run out of health center when waiting for blood test! But it's finally caught up with me and I've had to face up to it! I've actually got to and see my Dr later today for results of ECG/blood tests.I'm not looking forward to my appointment later but I know I've got to face up to the hard truths and deal with it
Update
My blood pressure came down quite considerably, Dr said BP tablets doing the job! ECG basically clear! Blood test a slightly raised cholesterol level! Dr asked me if I drink a lot of alcohol,as liver blood function a bit of concern! But I only drink approximately every other day one 330ml bottle of beer or Cider at home, very seldom go drinking at weekend! Dr didn't believe me! Asked me several times"are you sure". Said I needed to stop all alcohol and come back for another liver function blood test in three weeks!
