Dear George
I apologise for only responding to your question today, but I had to have an operation last Wednesday, and although I informed the boffins who administer the Message Board, they failed to block incoming messages while I was in hospital.
Stress is particularly harmful for health in general, but there is no direct link between stress levels and cholesterol levels. High cholesterol is usually due to genetic tendencies and/or a high dietary intake.
