How Much Do You Know About Cholesterol?

How often should you have your cholesterol checked? What should your LDL be? How about your total cholesterol? And which is worse: stick margarine, eggs or nuts?

Not sure of the answers? You're not alone. For a cholesterol challenge, an Everwell video crew headed to a Farmer's market to find out how much everyday people know about these cholesterol topics and others.

And, turns out, very few people have all the answers. "Terrible," lamented one of the volunteers when the anchor asked how she was doing.

To get to the bottom of these questions, Everwell interviewed experts to help straighten out fact from myth. Check out their answers and try out the quiz for yourself below.
