Remember that everything you consume provides either positive or negative affects on your body functions. If you do not fuel your body with pure elements; it cannot reach optimum function. This means that if over time you consume high levels of cholesterol producing foods - YOU WILL DEVELOP HIGH BLOOD LEVELS OF CHOLESTEROL. Sadly, if you are "fat" on the outside; you will be fat on the inside, too. By the same token, consuming foods and HERBS that work with your body to limit or eliminate cholesterol; you will most probably have normal cholesterol levels.
