Cholesterol (high)

Cholesterol is a type of fat found in all animals. It is an essential part of cell membranes, and is used in the body to make bile, steroid hormones, and fat-soluble vitamins including Vitamin A, D, E and K. It plays an essential part in most body processes. Cholesterol is made by the liver, intestines, adrenal glands and other organs in the body. We also get cholesterol from food. If there is insufficient cholesterol in the food we eat, then the body makes more.

We need sufficient cholesterol for good health. High levels of dietary cholesterol are NOT responsible for heart and arterial disease - details here. Similarly, a high level of cholesterol in the blood is not necessarily a problem, though a high level of LDL cholesterol may be a symptom that something else is amiss. Rather, it is the oxidation of cholesterol, the build-up of plaque and calcium deposition, atherosclerosis and inflammatory responses that are dangerous.

High LDL blood cholesterol is the symptom, not the cause. Conventional medicine has tried to lower cholesterol for decades, yet heart disease is still the biggest killer. It is far more effective to tackle atherosclerosis, high blood pressure and other circulatory problems, and the underlying causes such as systemic inflammation.
