Where Does Cholesterol Come From?


I understand that most of the cholesterol in the body is made by the liver. What is the raw material that the liver uses to make cholesterol though? Is it just saturated fat? All fats? Other macro/micro nutrients?


The straight dope on cholesterol by Peter Attia is a fascinating 10 piece blog post that will have the answer to that and prob anything about cholesterol.


Wow. Tons of information thereā€¦ Looks like he goes into at least 9 full blog posts about it. Thank you.


Awesome, thank you for the reference.
