As opposed to popular belief, cholesterol is not a bad or a harmful substance. Your body needs cholesterol to build healthy cells. But if your body has high levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL), also known as ‘bad’ cholesterol, it can increase your risk of heart disease. The fatty deposits can build up in and on the walls of the arteries, which can in turn jam the arteries, making it difficult for blood to flow. Sometimes, these deposits can suddenly break and form a clot, increasing a person’s risk of a heart attack or a stroke.
