I was a vegan for a short time in my college days, and I remember getting a check-up that year and being surprised that my cholesterol test came back with high numbers. I told the doctor that I wasn't even eating any cholesterol, and she said unfortunately, you can inherit high cholesterol from your parents. With diet and exercise, I've definitely helped to get my numbers in check, but it's a constant battle since genetics aren't on my side. What about you?
