Demonstrating how high cholesterol can damage artery walls, viewers see how a clean, normal artery can slowly turn into a plaque-encrusted mess, eventually leading to heart disease and heart attack. Comes with a two-sided tent card that explains how artery damage occurs and provides tips to maintain a healthy cholesterol level.
