Cholesterol and inventory: healthy choice guidelines


  • Richard J. Tersine
  • Michele G. Tersine


This paper is a comparative analysis of cholesterol and inventory and their similar effects on organisational and human health. Its purpose is to find a level of commonality between cholesterol and inventory and reveal how an understanding of one can provide practical insights into the other. The research focuses on the discovery of how each operates in positive and negative manners and how these behaviours produce beneficial and detrimental outcomes. A study on the similarities provide the basis for structuring healthy guidelines in the management of both. The research concludes that preventive strategies are superior to remedial responses that may only address symptoms of disorders. Thus, the results emphasise the importance of early detection, treatments (for harmful conditions), and guidelines for future lifestyle or operational modifications.
