In brief: LDLHDLnotCholesterol
Yes/some. But Cholesterol: a fat molecule manufactured by every animal cell; building block of each cell membrane (enables fluidity & not tearing) fundamental to survival of every animal cell & animal movement.
Lipoproteins (proteins which transport all fats in water outside cells) is the correct issue for artery disease (e.g. LDL ?700 nmol/l & Large-HDL ?9 µmol/l). Cholesterol ?$, but misleading.
