What is Cholesterol and Why the Concern?

What is Cholesterol and Why the Concern?
Cholesterol is a waxy substance made by the liver. It insulates nerves in the body and is responsible for making all of your sex hormones. The body makes enough on it's own, but most of us get additional cholesterol in our system by eating meat and dairy products in the typical American diet.

Too much Cholesterol can plug arteries going to your heart and brain causing heart attacks and strokes.
106 million Americans have Cholesterol levels above 200
Another 46 million have levels above 239.
