Amazing cholesterol animation





This animation describes a genetic condition resulting in persistently high cholesterol that doesn't respond to statins.

Statins are a class of medicines that are frequently used to lower blood cholesterol levels. The drugs are able to block the action of a chemical in the liver that is necessary for making cholesterol.
