Cholesterol testing from 35

3rd May 2007

Barbara Harpham of Heart Research UK has said cholesterol testing should be compulsory from the age of 35.

Her remarks came as the results of a trial funded by the British Heart Foundation were released. The results suggest that 5,000 deaths could be prevented each year by changes in the treatment of Acute Coronary Syndrome. She stated that the tests could help reduce the high number of people dying annually from heart disease, which she labeled the "biggest killer" in the country.
