Working with Cholesterol 911, he urged others to rethink their lifestyle.

He said; “We really want people to see the connection because a lot of people don’t realize high cholesterol – and if you’ve had one heart attack or stroke you increase your risk of another.”

“It’s like an earthquake, it may not destroy the house but it certainly weakens the structure.”

“There’s a lot of people walking around like that, they’re just time bombs. You’ve got all this cholesterol, you don’t realize it until it actually hits you know?

“It’s like in a car, if just a little bit of dirt gets into the needle eye of the nozzle and boom and no more petrol comes out. And that happens with your heart.”

He has previously detailed taking medication and using a wearable EKG machine, which monitors his heart rhythm and detects irregular heartbeats.
