Maintenance of the LDL Cholesterol: HDL Cholesterol Ratio in an Elderly Population Given a Dietary Cholesterol Challenge
While Dr. Ornish may disagree (and actually-his program was much, much more than just a low-cholesterol diet), I’ve never been all that concerned with dietary cholesterol. It’s not as simple as more dietary cholesterol = higher blood cholesterol. In many cases, it’s endogenous production driving by high insulin levels that’s more imp’t. But physicians still demonize high cholesterol foods that are good for us. Avocados. Eggs (especially the high omega-3 type).
This study supports the fact that dietary cholesterol is not as closely tied to cardiovascular risk as many would think.
