will this damage his cholestrol level and health?

The American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Cardiology endorses the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP), a part of the National Institutes of Health, which recommends everyone aged 20 years and older have their cholesterol measured at least once every 5 years. People with abnormal cholesterol levels or high risks for heart disease need more frequent checks.

Because your total cholesterol may be elevated, you should check with your physician and ask for help in interpreting your overall heart disease risk and establishing a time for routine checks of your lipid profile, which includes not only total cholesterol, but also high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides.

Cholesterol is measured in milligrams per deciliter of blood (mg/dL). To answer your question, in adults, total cholesterol levels of 240 mg/dL or higher are considered high risk; levels from 200 mg/dL to 239 mg/dL are considered borderline high risk; and 240 mg/dL or higher is high blood cholesterol. A person with this level has more than twice the risk of heart disease as someone whose cholesterol is below 200 mg/dL.

Wha did Countee Cullen do? What were his achievments?

Countee Cullen (March 30, 1903–January 9, 1946) was an American Romantic poet. Cullen was one of the leading African American poets of his time, associated with the generation of black poets of the Harlem Renaissance.

Cullen was secretive about his life, so it is unclear where he was actually born. He may have been born in New Orleans, Louisiana, according to the book "Countee Cullen's Secret Revealed by Miracle Book" by Shirley Porter Washington. Other scholars state he was born in Louisville, Kentucky, or Baltimore. Later in his life, Cullen said he was born in New York City. It is known that he attended Townsend Harris High School for one year, and then transferred to DeWitt Clinton High School in New York and received special honors in Latin studies in 1922.

Cullen won many poetry contests from a very young age and often had his winning work reprinted. He attended DeWitt Clinton High School, mainly consisting of all white, male students. He became Vice President of his class during his senior year, was also involved in the school magazine as an editor, and was affiliated with the Arista Honor Society.

After completing his secondary education, Cullen attended New York University. While an undergraduate, he published works in various literary magazines, including Harper's, Century Magazine, and Poetry. Also, his exceptional writing faculties were acknowledged with prizes from The Crisis, edited by W. E. B. Du Bois, and Opportunity of the National Urban League. He graduated in 1925 as a member of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, and was also initiated into Phi Beta Kappa honors society. Soon afterwards, he produced his first volume entitled "Color" and pursued graduate studies at Harvard University.

In April 1928, Cullen married Nina Yolande Du Bois, daughter of the famous W. E. B. Du Bois. Two months after the wedding, Cullen left for Europe with his father and Harold Jackman; his wife followed after a month.[2] He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1928.On January 9, 1946, Cullen died unexpectedly of uremic poisoning and complications from high blood pressure. After his death, for a few years, Cullen was honored as the most celebrated African-American writer. A collection of some of his best work was also arranged in On These I Stand.
