Do you know why cholesterol is a villain for your heart health? Our bodies need cholesterol and it is in all the cells in our body. In reality the human body makes enough cholesterol so the cholesterol we get from food is automatically excessive and from the way many people eat it’s easy to see how high cholesterol is becoming such a big problem.
