“Bad” cholesterol sticks to the artery walls and, as others come along, they clump together. This narrows the artery passageway, making the heart work harder to transport blood around the body.
Over time, high cholesterol levels can lead to heart disease, which the NHS add is “a major cause of death in the UK”.
Symptoms of heart disease include chest pain (angina), heart attacks and heart failure.
This deadly disease comes about when the heart’s blood supply is interrupted by a build-up of fatty despots (including “bad” cholesterol) in the coronary arteries.
