Cholestrol is a wide spread idsease present thorouout the world
the results of having high cholestrol is devastating
Throughout the world, cholesterol levels (measured in the blood) vary widely. Generally, people who live in countries where blood cholesterol levels are lower, such as Japan, have lower rates of heart disease. Countries with very high cholesterol levels, such as Finland, have very high rates of coronary heart disease. However, some populations with similar total cholesterol levels have very different heart disease rates, suggesting that other factors also influence risk for coronary heart disease.
People take the help of a doctor and also take medications like Atorvastatin to keep cholestrol under check.
Atorvastatin is an HMG CoA reductase inhibitor which means that it lowers the level of cholesterol in the body. It also blocks the production of LDL, a bad type of cholesterol that the body produces.
