Take the Fat Out of Father's Day!
Date:6/10/2008

NEW YORK, June 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Every Monday, Dad begins to put a lot on his plate at work to bring home the bacon. But maybe Monday could be the day he works to keep the bacon off his plate.

Here's a startling fact: By the age of 85, women outnumber men by over 2 to 1. It's no secret that millions of men in the U.S. have high cholesterol and are struggling to lower that harmful number. High cholesterol has been linked to a number of health problems including heart disease and cancer, the two leading causes of death for men.

This Father's Day, spend some time with Dad and treat him to his favorite meal. But on Monday, encourage him to eat less, eat leaner, and move more. Keeping his cholesterol in a healthy range will keep him around a lot longer. One easy way to start is by reducing saturated fat in the diet. Cut back on the red meat, switch to low-fat dairy products and consider making every Monday a meatless Monday!

It's easier than you think to make changes that could lower your cholesterol and improve your overall health. "Just try to get him to do it one Monday at a time," suggests Robert Lawrence, MD, founder of the Center for a Livable Future and Professor in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences, at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. "If he misses this week, he can try again next week. There are 52 chances a year to start fresh and stick with it."

Healthy Monday (http://www.healthymonday.org) advocates the idea of Monday as the day to focus on health and disease prevention weekly day of health. It's an innovative concept being applied to a variety of public health initiatives by a growing network of businesses, consumer groups, advocacy organizations, and schools all dedicated to improving the health of Americans. Healthy Monday is a project of Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Syracuse University Newhouse School of Public Communications. Healthy Monday is endorsed by the Board of Directors of the American Schools of Public Health as well as major health advocacy organizations, including the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association and the American Cancer Society.
