Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis is a common form of heart disease, in which plaques of cholesterol and other substances (similar to small tumors) form in the artery walls and eventually restrict blood flow. This constricted circulation leads to less oxygen for the heart muscle, resulting in chest pain (angina), usually following exercise or excitement. It also stresses the heart muscle to the point of failure, which is what happens during a heart attack. The initial connection between arteriosclerosis and cholesterol was made by the Russian pathologist Nikolay Anichkov. Atherosclerosis is not caused by old age. This is shown experimentally that people who were very poor in cholesterol and other lipids, was associated with low level of blood cholesterol as well as incidence of the cardiovascular disease.
