KatySoprano says "3Four50.jpgThis is a website run by a UK charity (for which I work), the Oxford Health Alliance. It encourages people from all over the world to share their stories and photos about preventing chronic disease (especially about diet, exercise and stopping smoking), and which also provides video news about chronic disease prevention. I hope the site might be of interest to BuddyPower members!
In case you're wondering, 3FOUR50 stands for 3 risk factors (diet, lack of exercise and smoking) that lead to FOUR chronic diseases (many cancers, diabetes, heart disease, lung disease) that cause - amazingly - well over 50% of deaths in the world. Scary, isn't it! Obesity isn't just a problem in the UK or 'developed' countries, it's an ever-growing problem all over the world."

HEART UK -The Cholesterol Charity
Webmaster Tony says "

HEART UK -The Cholesterol Charity -  is passionate about preventing premature deaths caused by high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.
The charity aims to help families with a high risk of premature cardiovascular disease (CVD), especially those with inherited high cholesterol. More than three quarters of people with inherited high cholesterol are not diagnosed and therefore remain untreated.
HEART UK seeks to break the vicious cycle of unnecessary heart attacks and death in young people from families with an inherited high risk, and to ensure that people can live healthy, active lives rather than become disabled by illness. The charity provides nursing and dietetic support through a dedicated helpline.

HEART UK strives to encourage innovative approaches to prevention by sharing scientific and medical information, knowledge and expertise through national and international networks. The charity offers a platform for exchanging information about healthy living and state-of-the-art treatment of high-risk patients, and is committed to ensuring that all individuals affected by these conditions are able to receive the medical treatment they need.

HEART UK has recently launched a redlaces campaign to ‘keep young hearts running’. Redlaces raise awareness of the dangers of FH and raise funds to support the work of HEART UK.
With half a million pairs out on bikes, playing fields, tennis courts and skating rinks we can all raise awareness about the risks of inherited high cholesterol and make people question their family’s heart history.
