nouna compound of the sterol type found in most body tissues. Cholesterol and its derivatives are important constituents of cell membranes and precursors of other steroid compounds, but a high proportion in the blood of low-density lipoprotein (which transports cholesterol to the tissues) is associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease.
That’s the definition Google gives you if you search for Cholesterol. If I were to ask you what jumped out at you from the entire definition, I’m pretty sure you will say “heart disease”.
Not just because that seems like the least complicated part of the definition. But because that’s the conditioning we’ve had over the years – the connection between heart disease and cholesterol is so strong. In reality, the connection is not so unidimensional as we are made to think.
