p.s. its not by eating cholesterol!!!!
cholesterol is produced in your liver from the "food bricks" called nutritinal principles. All lipids, proteins and glucides are transformed here – after very complex chemical (actually biochemically) reactions – in compounds that can be used by our body. Low density lipoproteins (LDL cholesterol or "bad’ ch.) and High density lipoproteins (HDL cholesterol or "good" ch.) are only a small part of the substances made in our body. It’s important if we eat animal fats (plenty of ch. and fat acids) because we put in our body a great amount of raw material for making a lot of bad cholesterol. There are also in some vegetables substances cholesterol-like and special types of fat acids which can be used to produce cholesterol and lipoproteins.
Anyway it’s a very complex process and it’s impossible to explain it in a few words (I learned it a hole year at med. university!)
Diffrent foods, mostly fatty ones.
It’s produced by the liver. Some research suggests that diet may play a small role in how much of each type of cholesterol the body produces – LDL ("bad" cholesterol) and HDL ("good" cholesterol) – but the findings are sketchy at best. The amount of cholesterol produced by the body is largely controlled by heredity.
On a side note, this is also a good way to know if a food that claims to be vegetarian really is. Cholesterol is only made by liver, so any food containing cholesterol has at least some animal product in it.
