DIETITIANS AND HIGH BLOOD CHOLESTEROL
Cholesterol is a type of fat that is essential to the functioning of our bodies as long as it is present in limited quantities. It is produced in part by the liver but also comes from certain foods we consume, such as meat, eggs, dairy products, and other animal fats. If LDL cholesterol increases in the blood, it becomes dangerous because it is deposited on the inner walls of the arteries and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease or stroke. This problem is called hypercholesterolemia.
