Abstract:The article offers information about the role of cholesterol, a fatty substance and the most abundant sterol in the body, in heart and blood vessels. There are two types of cholesterol in the body, high density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL). It is noted that high levels of HDL in the blood may help to reduce the risk of coronary artery disease. On the other hand, LDL is considered as bad cholesterol, but it is helpful for cellular growth and repair.
