Journal of Cholesterol and Heart Disease

The cholesterol molecule is a combination of fat and protein that is found in the blood stream. Different permutations of protein and fat make the molecule either healthy or harmful. The liver produces cholesterol and sends it to other parts of the body for the production of hormones and cell membranes. When cholesterol is transported in the bloodstream, it is packed into low-density lipoproteins (LDL), sometimes called the “bad cholesterol.” Although LDL is needed in limited quantities (LDL delivers cholesterol to various parts of the body), a high LDL cholesterol level can dramatically increase risk of a heart attack.

Abnormal levels of cholesterol can lead to cardiovascular disease. High blood cholesterol is generally the reason for most of the cardiovascular disease, as it accumulate in the arteries and narrow it, a condition called Atherosclerosis.
