You're not far from the truth.

It's not the cholesterol. ..it's inflammation.
Inflammation caused by processed foods, trans fats and too much sugar. The inflammation causes scarring which allows the cholesterol to get trapped and clogged in the arteries.
“The mantra ‘eggs can be part of a healthy diet for healthy people’ has confused the issue. It has been known for a long time that a high cholesterol intake increases the risk of cardiovascular events, and egg yolks have a very high cholesterol content. In diabetics, an egg a day increases coronary risk by two to five-fold,” says Dr. Spence, a Professor of Neurology at Western’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry and the Director of its Stroke Prevention and Atherosclerosis Research Centre (SPARC) at the Robarts Research Institute. “What we have shown is that with aging, plaque builds up gradually in the arteries of Canadians, and egg yolks make it build up faster – about two-thirds as much as smoking. In the long haul, egg yolks are not okay for most Canadians.”
Dr. Spence adds the effect of egg yolk consumption over time on increasing the amount of plaque in the arteries was independent of sex, cholesterol, blood pressure, smoking, body mass index and diabetes. And while he says more research should be done to take in possible confounders such as exercise and waist circumference, he stresses that regular consumption of egg yolk should be avoided by persons at risk of cardiovascular disease.

the bark facing the sun on some Trees here in Australia is being burnt off by the sun.
I don't suppose you have any supporting evidence to go with that claim ?

Regarding the health aspects, the human body only needs trace amounts, and it produces all it needs on its own.
Then why can the body handle large amounts of saturated fat like it's no big deal?
Why has literally 97% of our species life been dependent on a high fat diet, which in turn would bring large amounts of cholesterol?

The primate family, to which we belong, has had a mostly carbohydrate diet for over 10 million years. We evolved into hominids in tropical forests, again eating a mostly carbohydrate diet.
If you're on a low-carb diet, then this must sound nuts. But you have been lied to. And your health is greatly suffering for it.
