Essential to good health, especially women’s wellness, cholesterol should not be something that is feared and revered when eating a nutritious diet. It is a naturally occurring product found in the body which is made by the liver.

The simple friction that occurs when you rub skin against skin while using hot water and soap, followed by drying, gets rid of potentially harmful germs.
