Finally, Experts Agree – Dietary Cholesterol Isn’t Dangerous!

By Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C., F.A.C.N., C.N.S., C.B.T.

Citing scientific evidence, the leading nutrition advisory group in the U.S. has reversed a longstanding position on cholesterol in food.

The advisory group is an expert panel that helps the government establish its official dietary guidelines every five years. Its new findings (finally!) exonerate dietary cholesterol as a nutrient of concern for overconsumption. You read me right! Cholesterol, which has been vilified for decades, is no longer seen by mainstream experts as something to limit or eliminate from your diet as a means of preventing high cholesterol levels in your body.

If you are concerned – unnecessarily, I believe – about the danger of cholesterol, the panel’s new recommendation means you can basically stop worrying about eating egg yolks and other animal-based foods. Whether the U.S. government will officially adopt this recommendation remains to be seen; its official dietary recommendations will be published later this year.

    I hope this means I don’t have to take statins anymore.

    Chris Masterjohn reckons 80% of people are not sensitive to dietary cholesterol. I agree a a week having eggs for breakfast and two servings of liver for dinner resulted in a hike from 3.0 to 4.0 for my LDL. Should the 20% still be vigilant or does a raise in LDL have little relevance to heart disease if the LDL is big and fluffy
