In recent years, cholesterol has been under heavy attack. It seems that every authority has been giving it a bad rap.
The truth of the matter is that cholesterol is essential for the cells in your body.
However, too much of any good thing can cause serious health problems.
Excess cholesterol increases your risk for developing coronary disease heart disease (CHD) or a stroke.
Everyone talks about cholesterol, but few people actually understand what it is.
Despite its bad rap, some cholesterol is vitally important for good health, as it is a major building block for many structures within our bodies, even our bones and teeth, as cholesterol is a precursor for Vitamin D.
