Cholesterol and CAD (Coronary artery disease)

\r\n Cholesterol helps the body to build and insulate nerves, new cells and produce hormones. Generally, the liver makes all the cholesterol that the body needs. But sometimes cholesterol travels in the bloodstream in high-density lipoproteins (HDL) and low-density lipoproteins (LDL). HDL is also called as “good cholesterol” because it picks up cholesterol and takes it back to the liver for disposal where as LDL transmits cholesterol in to the parts of body that need it. It is sometimes referred as “bad cholesterol”. If bloodstream having this bad cholesterol, it can cling to the walls of heart arteries, eventually clogging them. Too much cholesterol in taking is a risk factor for cardiac diseases. Some dietary intake factors influence to the risk of CAD include trans-fats, saturated fats, and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
