I just found out that I have high cholesterol and I was wondering if you could help clarify something for me.

I am a young, Asian woman and I heard a myth from a friend that Filipinos, Hawaiian, Japanese, ect. can have really high cholesterol, but that it's okay. I am not over weight and I do not eat unhealthy. Is this myth true? That if a Caucasian and an Asian both have high cholesterol, the Caucasian is in more danger of heart disease? My friend was telling me about how he has 300+ cholesterol but that he's healthy and that his family members such as grandparents have 300+ but they are healthy and 90 years old! Is it really because of ethnicity?

Thank you for clearing this up for me.
