I know that so much fats running in the bloodstream could deposit in arteries, harden forming a plaque and cause atherosclerosis. But what about veins (which are formed from same types of layers as arteries) and capillaries?
I googled a bit but everything was regarding arteries.
Is it because veins have a much wider diameter than arteries that even if some fats deposit they won't clog it?
And for capillaries, they are much smaller so shouldn't they be more vulnerable to this?
In addition, I guess since one of the lymphatic vessels functions are to transport fats from capillaries in villi to bloodstream, how are they adapted to prevent deposit of fats as they carry out the transportation?
N:B I'm just an OL biology student, and also horrible at chemistry
