I have high bad cholesteral and can not understand why? I power walk aerobics and eat the healthiest I can.

It is not your fault! If you are eating in a healthy way and exercising regularly, you are definitely helping yourself. However high your bad cholesterol is, it would probably be much higher if you ate unhealthy foods and were not physically active. Also, you are not alone. I have a friend who is a really good runner. He qualified for the Boston Marathon and completed it in under 3 hours. His bad cholesterol is too high if he doesn’t take his atorvastatin.
