Cholesterol clog arteries

Arteries functions as vessels that carry oxygenated blood away from the heart and transfer it to some cells, tissues and organs in the body, such brain, fingers, genitals, leg, ear, nose, etc

When cholesterol is buildup in the inner walls of arteries, it may result into blockage of the whole arteries. However, arteries remain stagnant and functionless. It may lead to heart-attack – one of the top 5 leading death in North-America especially in the US, and can also lead to sudden death.

Gall stone buildup
Gall bladder usually breakdown cholesterol secreted by the liver. If the bile produce in the gall bladder is lower than the cholesterol, the bile won’t be able to split the cholesterol into very small particles. As a result, some gall stones may develop, though they are not really stones but some sort of solid particles. Gall stones can be very big or small. 

Accumulations of fat in the liver

Liver produces the cholesterol and other fatty substances such as triglyceride for the body to maintain certain amount of vitamin D and hormones. Hormones control activities of some cells, tissues and organs.

However, if there is much cholesterol in the blood, the blood will not act faster in transporting the fatty materials secreted by the liver, therefore, the fatty acids accumulates around the liver.
