If i become a vegetarian will that lower my cholesterol and increase my chances of not having heart disease like my mom and grandmom?
YES!!!: Vegetarians do have lower cholesterol & a much lower risk of heart disease, though the lower risk is not necessarily due to lower cholesterol! the real cause of heart disease is inflammation & a vegetarian diet is less inflammatory.

Diet & exercise may not be enough to always counteract these. ...Read more
