Good ; Wrong Issue: Chol.: a fat molecule made by every animal cell, building block of each cell membrane, fundamental to survival of every animal cell ; movement, promoted as surrogate maker for lipoproteins (proteins which transport all fats in the water outside cells) for ↓$. When more body fat, more fats being transported ; lipoproteins (often also chol estimations) worse. With ↓ed body fat, lipoproteins better.
