    I doubt that cholesterol was a concern for people in olden times. It was discovered fairly recently.

    The title of the thread should be: Please look at(not over)/check my essay.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    I have fixed the spelling of my improved title. As for "look over" it is a phrasal verb meaning "to examine something". Example: "Would you please look this over and correct any mistakes?"

    Re: Please look over my eassy ? (TOEFL)

    According to the dictionary, "to look over something" is to examine something quickly or to give it a cursory look.

    I don't consult a dictionary unless I'm unsure of something.
