The season you're living in could impact if you have high cholesterol or low cholesterol.
Researchers in Brazil studied the blood profiles of more than 200,000 people. They found levels of bad cholesterol were higher in winter. This lead to an eight percent increase in the prevalence of high cholesterol.
