Depends if U believe: Eat a well balanced low animal fat diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, & monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats, avoiding transfats & hydrogenated fats. No dietary supplement has been shown to prevent heart disease. Statin drugs have. Repeatedly, worldwide, many studies, in men and women. Niacin and fish oils raise HDL (good) cholesterol but unclear if they change outcome. Be thin!
