In brief: Early on good but...
When we are born we need a large amount of lipids and cholesterol in our diet.
We use it for building our CNS and neurologic systems.Also helps with immune system etc. As we get older we need much less. If we take in more than our bodies need then we get deposition of the excess in the heart and liver and fat cells.
