Many researchers and scientists have defined Cholesterol as a waxy fat like substance found in the cells of the body.
There are two sources of cholesterol :
1. Animal products that we eat such as Red meat, Shellfish , and Diary products.
2. The cholesterol produced by the Liver.
But is CHOLESTEROL a bad guy?.
No cholesterol is not a bad guy because it helps the body to make:
- Cells membrane,
2.Produce many hormones and
3. Produce Vitamin D.
In some individual the liver tends to produce more than it needs.
And you cannot burn out cholesterol through exercises and cannot sweat it out either.
So some drug manufacturing companies produce drugs to help slow down the synthesis of cholesterol in the liver or stop the absorption of the excess cholesterol.
For example a couple that get pregnant anytime that they said “hello” to each other might decide to do a tubal ligation to stop having children after giving birth to four children.
Is not because they don’t like children. They just do not want many children since they cannot afford to nurture them well and give them quality education.
