Cholesterol

Cholesterol is an organic chemical substance and is a steroid of fat. High levels of this steroid fat can cause real problems with humans leading to heart and circularity problems as the fat builds up layers in vital veins thereby restricting blood flow to vital organs such as the heart and can n some cases cause heart failure.
