Higher sides of cholesterol levels are the only reason of heart attacks.

Fact

In addition to a heart attack, an individual with high levels of cholesterol can suffer from a stroke as well. This is because plaque can build up not only in the coronary arteries but also in the arteries that supply blood to the brain. A stroke occurs when a blood clot is formed in these arteries and the blood supply and oxygen supply to the brain is blocked.
