Poor quesiton: Cholesterol is a natural part of our body. We need cholesteol for our cell membranes. Too much of a good thing can be bad and that is why we check cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels.

Normal body fat: Cholesterol is a waxy, fatty chemical with bad press. It is a normal component of your cell membranes and a critical building block of many hormones that include the sex hormones and blood pressure hormones. The problem is that some types of cholesterol (e.g., ldl-c) when modified in blood vessels can trigger the atherosclerotic process that can block arteries to organs, that then malfunction.
