Caption

Medical visualization of the digestive system superimposed on a man eating a sandwich. Fats in your diet are broken down in your small intestine with the help of bile salts and enzymes produced by your pancreas and liver. Fat doesn't dissolve in water, however, so these tiny blobs of fat must be packaged in ways that allow them to move easily through the blood to all parts of your body. These fat packets go by different names (such as cholesterol) depending on their size and composition.
