The body produces the cholesterol it requires in the liver and intestines, so people do not need to consume it from foods. Keeping cholesterol levels within safe ranges may involve maintaining a moderate weight and limiting saturated fat intake. 

Cholesterol levels need to be within healthy ranges to prevent heart disease and stroke. However, unless someone has a test, they may be unaware that they have high cholesterol. This is because it does not usually cause any symptoms.
