Atherosclerosis is the build-up of cholesterol-rich plaques in artery walls. It is the leading cause of heart attacks and strokes.
LDL (“bad” cholesterol) particles appear to be the primary source of the cholesterol in these plaques. Lowering LDL by diet and/or drugs has been shown to slow and sometimes even reverse (regress) the build-up of atherosclerotic plaques.
