In brief: Pills, diet

Certain medications effectively lower the cholesterol and also have been proven to reduce the risk of a heart attack.
Diet and exercise can also help.

In brief: LDLHDLnotCholesterol

Cholesterol (?$, but misleading): a fat molecule manufactured by every animal cell, building block of each cell membrane (enables membrane fluidity/movement without tearing), fundamental to survival of every animal cell.
Lipoproteins (proteins which transport all fats in the water outside cells) is the correct issue for artery disease (e.g. Ldl ?700 nmol/l, HDL ?45 µmol/l). Study: nusi.Org, lustig.
