Why is cholesterol important for your health and the function of your body?

Q. Why is cholesterol important for your health and the function of your body? Is cholesterol in your diet really that bad?

A. Cholesterol doesn't make you fat or anything, but it contributes to heart disease in the future. If you have a high cholesterol, you have a high chance of heart disease. To prevent this, try eating mono-unsaturated fats, and poly-unsaturated fats. These are good fats that lower bad cholesterol, and increase your good cholesterol. Sources of mono and poly unsaturated fats are nuts - almonds, pecans, peanuts, and walnuts, and cooking oil, lol.

When does cholesterol synthesis occurs during the night, or whenever one goes to sleeps?
Q. -Statins are suggested to be taken at night when cholesterol synthesis occurs most. But does this process occurs during the daytime as well, when certain individuals goes to sleep (such as those with overnight working schedules), or does synthesis occur when there is very little or no sunlight present?

A. Where do I ask a question?

How many mg of cholesterol can you have per day if you have high cholesterol?
Q. Some websites say 300 mg and some say 200 mg. Which one is correct?

This is for people with a high cholesterol level btw.

A. I checked too, and i read that if your cholesterol is 5,2 - 6,5 mmol/l then you can have 300 mg per day
If the cholesterol is 6,5 - 7,8 mmol/l then you can have 200mg per day.
if the cholesterol is up to 7,8 mmol/l then you can have 150 mg / day

I hope it helps!
