Caption: LIBRARY Cholesterol. Computer generated model showing a molecule of cholesterol. Chemically, cholesterol is a lipid and is an important constituent of cells. It is formed by rings of carbon (green) with 46 hydrogen atoms (blue) and one oxygen atom (red). In the human body it plays an important role in the formation of hormones and bile salts and in the transport of fats in the bloodstream to tissues throughout the body. There is overwhelming evidence that an high blood cholesterol level increases the risk of developing atherosclerosis.
