The Exoneration of Cholesterol

People should realize that not only some cholesterol is ‘good’ for them, but that cholesterol is a fundamental part of the human body, is produced by the liver, and composes the cell membrane of almost every cell!

You can’t live without cholesterol, and the disinformation that has been spread to the public ever since the 1980’s was purely economically driven and had disastrous health consequences on the American people.

There are two types of cholesterol, the HDL, or high density lipoprotein, which is very good, and the LDL (low density lipoprotein) which is not so good.  You need both in your blood to really function as a human being.

Many foods that contain cholesterol, namely animal foods, since plant foods don’t contain any cholesterol, are good for human health and veganism is not a panacea.  Foods such as whole eggs, fish, shrimp, wild game, etc… contain cholesterol in high quantities, but if eaten won’t raise your blood serum cholesterol in any hazardous way.

There is a lot of ignorance amongst the American population about basic nutritional information, and that is why they suffer from easily reversible diseases of the affluent.  Saturated fat, trans fat, and hydrogenated fats are the real enemy when it comes to unnatural, unhealthy fat in your diet, and what you should really look out for.

My point is, cholesterol is innocent, and not something to blame your heart disease or any other disease on.
