Letter Of The Week
I cannot thank you enough for your article offering 10 steps towards a healthier heart (26
September). My partner had a heart attack not long ago and he has to watch his health now very closely. But I had been eating very unhealthily. Being a full-time carer for my 94-year-old mother, I put myself last. I finally got my cholesterol checked and it was 9! After your article I decided to look after myself – I ate porridge for breakfast every morning, (as opposed to nothing!) and had my five-a-day (as opposed to two!). I also started eating yogurt and walking for at least 15 minutes every day. Within one week my cholesterol went down to 7 and I feel and look much better. Thank you, not only for making me feel and look younger and healthier, but also potentially saving our lives.
