Getting older is no fun. Unless, of course, you're turning 16 or even 21. Then it's kind of a downhill slope from there. But that doesn't have to be the case, though, and millions of older gen-ers are proving the stereotypes wrong, living life to the fullest well into their 50's, 60's, 70's and beyond.
I've always been interested in monitoring my cholesterol ever since my mother died from a heart attack aged just 45. I was 13 years old at the time. Watching your mother drop dead in front of you is something you carry with you for the rest of your life. So I knew that I had to look after my health and most importantly my heart.
