  3. Cholesterol cannot dissolve in water, so it is carried in the blood by lipoproteins.

  4. The human sex hormones are derived from cholesterol.

  5. Excessive levels of cholesterol packaged into LDL can lead to plaque formation and coronary artery disease.

  6. The phospholipid molecule maintains the fluid nature of animal cell membranes.
