Cholesterol is in the blood and every cell of our bodies. The body uses cholesterol to form healthy, strong cell membranes, and to help make essential vitamins and hormones. A high level of cholesterol however, is not a good thing, especially in teens. They'll be at increased risk for developing cardiovascular disease, along with diabetes and certain cancers if obese or overweight. This informative book provides teens with the detailed information they need to know about eating healthily, having good fitness levels and weight, and other factors that affect their health. Readers will learn about low-density lipoprotein and high-density lipoprotein, the risk factors of high cholesterol, checking their cholesterol levels, BMI, and how to manage stress.
