Is this sentence confusing? People who have a high level of cholesterol, or steroids, on the surface of their skin tend to attract more mosquitos (4). Earlier, someone said that it was confusing since you wouldn't know if it was both (as in cholesterol and steroids) or either one. Is it still like that?

IT was recently People who have a high level of cholesterol or steroids on the surface of their skin tend to attract more mosquitos (4). (I just took away the commas) so that fixed it right?
It was recently people who have a high level of cholesterol or steroids on the surface of their skin tend to attract more mosquito's.
Oops, I forgot the apostrophes: It was recently: "People who have a high level of cholesterol or steroids on the surface of their skin tend to attract more mosquitos (4)."
"People who have a high level of cholesterol or steroids on the surface of their skin tend to attract more mosquito's." also, put the commas back in...
Ok :) Thank you!

ok, so what were u asking? lol
I wanted to make sure that the cited works up there^ are correctly cited
yes
Thanks :)
One...last question...?
ok
(Honestly is the last one :P)
ok
How can I close this paragraph? #10 It probably seems like every female mosquito’s goal is to make more blood-sucking monsters to make your life miserable, doesn’t it? That’s one way to put it. The next time you are assaulted by mosquitos, their wings buzzing at 500 beats per second in your ear, remember what a difficult path they had to take to reach you (7). They have had to survive against long odds to seek out one refreshing drink (you can spare a drop of blood) to continue a cycle first started as early as 250 million years ago (9). ---> this is kinda irrelevant I know: True, mosquitos seem to be an ever-present annoyance, but think about it. If you had survived the many predators waiting to make a meal of you throughout your entire life and then, just as you were arriving at the meal you needed to continue your lineage, your life was carelessly ended by a single flick of a human finger.
It's my conclusion paragraph
just add, like, so just spare some of your blood, and save a life.
Well, most likely, we wouldn't want to save their lives considering they could spread diseases :P
see, like when i get skeeto bites, i dont kill em, lol i mean there not doing n e thing wrong, there just thirsty. lmao... soon theyll be on there way to someone new.. why kill em
Do you tihnk the whole thing is a little irrelevant since I talked about how much they b other the person now I'm saying don't bother mosquitos
yeah
so what should I do? (I'm going to go eat, but I'll be back soon)
stick to one side of your story, choose one thats easier to write for, and same here, thats why i left, to go get food xD lol
With respect to your original question, about this sentence -- People who have a high level of cholesterol, or steroids, on the surface of their skin tend to attract more mosquitos (4). This use of the commas (called the appositional "or") tells me that "steroids" is another way of saying "cholesterol." Is that correct? If the two terms are not synonymous (and I have never heard that they are), then the commas are incorrect. In that case, the sentence ought to be instead this -- People who have high levels of either cholesterol or steroids on the surface of their skin tend to attract more mosquitos (4).
Ohhh
Ok, thanks!
