    i read somewhere that a guy living on 20 eggs a day never had an increase of cholesterol.

    personally i believe that starchy foods, refined sugar, processed carbohydrates like bread and rice, can incrase your cholesterol. Do you know that cholesterol is a requirement of the body? yes it is. It’s needed for important certain body functions. I think that high cholesterol doesn’t mean your eating lots of cholesterol, but your diet is not very healthy. You need to eat lean protiens and lots of frutis and veggies….it’s just my opinion, but i’ve done a lot of research….good luck.

    First of all cholesterol is required for synthesis of hormones such as testosterone, aldosterone and cortisol.
    Second, dietary cholesterol is found only in foods derived from animals (meat, fish, poultry, eggs and dairy products); it is not present in plants. SATURATED FATS have a profound hypercholesterolemic effect (increase blood cholesterol levels). They are found predominantly in animal products (butter, cheese and meat) but coconut oil and palm oil are common vegetable sources. SATURATED FAT RAISES BLOOD CHOLESTEROL LEVELS MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IN THE DIET, even more than dietary cholesterol.

    A minimum of 25 grams of soy protein must be consumed daily in order to reap optimal cholesterol-lowering benefits. Good sources of soy protein include soy milk, tempeh, tofu, and textured soy protein, a main ingredient in many meat substitutes.

    Americans are being saturated with anti-cholesterol propaganda. If you watch very much television, you’re probably one of the millions of Americans who now has a terminal case of cholesterol phobia. The probaganda is relentless and is often designed to produce fear and loathing of this works of all food contaminants. You never hear the food propagandists bragging about their product being fluoride free or aluminum free, two of our truly serious food-addidtive problems. But cholesterol, an essential nutrient not proven to be harmfull in ANY quantity is constantly pilloried as a menance to your health. If you don’t use corn oil, Fleishmann’s margarine and Egg Beaters, you are going straight to atherosclerosis hell with stroke, heart attack and premature aging and so are your kids.

    Eat Your Cholesterol

    In Framingham, Massachusetts, the more saturated fat one ate, the more cholesterol one ate, the more calories one ate, the lower people’s serum cholesterol …we bound that the people who ate the most cholesterol, ate the most saturated fat, ate the most calories weighed the least and were the most physically active.
