Studies have found that the risk of cancer is increased by increased levels of iron and cholesterol in the blood. Cholesterol is divided basically into two type of lipoproteins "good" HDL (high density lipoprotein) cholesterol and "bad" LDL (low density lipoproteins) cholesterol. Both types of cholesterol increase the risk of developing cancer in conjunction with high iron levels due to the increased production of oxidative stress.
