The key is not in overall cholesterol but in the amount of good vs. bad cholesterol. You really can’t tell from the cholesterol number on the nutrition label. You will have to look at fats, fiber, sugar, and carbs as well. They all contribute to your bad cholesterol numbers. This article, http://www.ehow.com/how_4792656_control-cholesterol-part-fats.html will give you inforation about which fats contribute to the bad cholesterol and which help the good cholesterol. You want the good cholesterol to be high because it helps lower the bad cholesterol. Also look at parts 2 and 3 of the same article under "related articles."
