High stress = high cholesterol levels

Another reason we need to get mellow: to keep our cholesterol levels low.

What this study found is that people whose cholesterol rose in the short term during stressful tasks had higher levels of cholesterol 3 years later. This means that if you're the type of person whose cholesterol rises in response to stress, then you've got to keep your stress level down in order to keep your cholesterol down.
