Gentlemen, stress is serious and when combined with high cholesterol, it can lead to death. What can you do about it? Calm down. In a 1992 article, the Journal of the American Medical Association revealed the correlation between stress and the production of serum cholesterol in men. The study concluded that acute mental stress can cause serum cholesterol to raise rapidly- and persist after the stressful event. If you are going to bother eating oatmeal and watching your cholesterol intake, don’t forget to add a few de-stressing techniques. Read the facts for yourself.
