Cholesterol , Good or Evil?
Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that's found in your blood and every cell of your body. You need some cholesterol to keep your cells and organs healthy.
Your liver makes all the cholesterol your body needs. But you can also get cholesterol from the foods you eat, especially meat, eggs, poultry, and dairy products. Foods that are high in dietary fat can also make your liver produce more cholesterol.
There are two main types of cholesterol:
a) low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or "bad" cholesterol, (L as in “lousy”)
b) high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or "good" cholesterol. (H as in "happy")
Too much LDL cholesterol in your blood increases your risk for coronary artery disease and other heart diseases. High LDL levels can cause the buildup of a sticky substance called plaque in your arteries.
Given its nature, HDL is good because it carries away other kinds of cholesterol, (including LDL), away from the arteries. It might help to think of HDL as a delivery truck and LDL as a dump truck. HDL drops off other types of cholesterol at the liver to be removed from the body. It's believed that higher levels of HDL reduce the risk for heart disease.
