Cholesterol is a fatty substance, which is produced in the body. The liver makes it from the saturated fats in food. Very little cholesterol is found in foods, except for eggs, liver and kidneys. Cholesterol plays a vital role in ensuring every cell wall works, throughout the body. The body also uses it to make other vital chemicals. However, too much cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of getting coronary heart disease. High blood cholesterol is now recognised as one of the main risk factors for coronary heart disease, closely followed by lack of exercise. In fact 70% of adults in the UK have blood cholesterol levels that are too high. Men and women are at equal risk and this is not just a worry for older people anymore.
