High cholesterol is a key factor in impairing heart health, but doctors warn that it significantly affects the decline in bone density.
According to research referenced by AgroWeb.org, high cholesterol levels cause the elimination of bone connective tissue.
This causes osteoarthritis, a special type of arthritis that occurs when bone tissue breaks down and weakens.
