This is the Police. We have you surrounded…

The liver takes the LDL Cholesterol particles and passes them out of the body in the bile. While the liver is working to place this excess LDL-Cholesterol splinters into the process of forming bile, the High-Density Lipoprotein “police car” particle is on its way back to the arteries, picking out some more LDL cholesterol to transport back to the liver.

You want as many HDL Cholesterol “police cars” as you can have.  Prescription For Life will teach you how exercise and weight loss get as many HDL Cholesterol particles into your bloodstream as possible.  Read it and understand why not all fats are bad.
