    I likes the video up to the point they mentioned remember to take your
    medicine. According to the New England Journal of medicine, about 50% of
    heart attack victims have normal cholesterol. Their is no evidence that a
    blood test showing high cholesterol means it will turn into to plaque. That
    is primarily your genes. Although many anti statins lower readings, there
    is no evidence to support they help in plaque prevention. Eating well,
    omega3’s, vitamin C, low dose aspirin and exercise. Thats it

    1:53 She says once this layer is damaged. Did she specify why it was
    damaged? People have been really misled as to how cholesterol actually
    works. And first off. Cholesterol is cholesterol. Their is no good and bad.
    LDL means low-density lipo-proteins. no where in that term is cholesterol
    stated. people get the proteins which only transport the cholesterol mixed
    up with the actual cholesterol. Look the information up. Their isn’t enough
    room for me to write how cholesterol really works here.

    @DFresh215 HDL is just a protein that takes the damaged cholesterol back to
    your liver, where cholesterol is manufactured and then the old cholesterol
    is recycled and turned back into new cholesterol. Your body isn’t stupid.
    Eating cholesterol has little if anything to do with cholesterol levels in
    humans.

    Thanks for your information! I really checked up on it once i read this
    comment. Now i know that cholesterol really IS just one type of molecule,
    but there REALLY are good and bad cholesterol, right? it’s just categorised
    according to whether it is transported in low-density (bad) or high density
    lipoproteins, right?

    HDL = High Density Lipoprotein. HDL is a PROTEIN that binds with
    cholesterol to carry away from the body to the liver to recycle using the
    blood vessels as a transportation system. LDL = Low Density Lipoprotein.
    LDL is a PROTEIN that carries cholesterol to other parts of the body using
    the blood vessels as a medium, WHICH IS NOT EXPLAINED IN HERE! It is
    assumed that the final destination of cholesterol is at the bl vessel,
    which is VERY WRONG!

    Should have mentioned the key terms; Atheroma Thrombosis Aneurysm and
    eventually finish off with Myocardial infarction. It would have helped me
    and more A level Bio students much more but good explanation of how
    cholesterol causes the arteries to become blocked up [Atheroma stage
    leading to thrombosis] then about how the arteries swell up [Aneurysm
    stage].

    I think you need to relax! yes LDL is a transporter but the more LDL you
    have, the more cholesterol is being transported by LDL, and so due to the
    harmful effects of LDL once oxidised etc…the LDL/Cholesterol COMPLEX is
    BAD! so to call it bad cholesterol may not be 100% correct but who cares,
    it makes people understand!
