Yes, cholesterol is also produced in cells, but nature knew what it was doing when the mevalonate pathway was put into place. Its there for a very good reason. To sustain life support to the body.

So when people tell you not to worry about your high LDL-C levels, please reconsider abandoning your doctor's LDL-C-lowering advice. And definitely don't worry that low LDL-C levels will deprive your cells of their much-needed cholesterol. It won't. Your cells are quite capable of making their own supply of cholesterol. On a somewhat esoteric note, it is true that the surface of LDL particles transports some vital nutrients around the body (vitamin E for one). This fact however does not imply that more LDL is better than less. We need just a tiny bit for non-cholesterol purposes. Excess does us no good, and in truth it does us a good deal of harm. - See more at: http://fpim.org/articles/heart-health/ldl-cholesterol-sometimes-the-simple-questions-are-the-most-revealing/#sthash.XbJFYyfv.dpufThe cells make most of the cholesterol that the body needs.

But if you do the research you can find that tornadoes can improve a community.
It is not so much foods that lower cholesterol as to a heart healthy lifestyle.
