burgerWASHINGTON, DC – The recession wasn’t just bad for our pocket books, it was bad for our health too.

And that’s a shame, since cholesterol levels have been on the decline for decades, but as of 2008, those numbers have flat lined, showing no continued improvement.

Quest Diagnostics, the largest health laboratory in the U.S. studied 247 million LDL tests (that’s the bad cholesterol) from 105 million adults between 2001 and 2011.

Not good news since heart disease is still the nation’s number one killer.

Though some argue that healthy folks may have skipped testing during the financial hard times.

What to do, you ask?
