You are probably aware that there are myths that portray fat and cholesterol as one of the worst foods you can consume. Please understand that these myths are actually harming your health.

 

Cholesterol could easily be described as the smoking gun of the last two decades. It’s been responsible for demonizing entire categories of foods (like eggs and saturated fats) and blamed for just about every case of heart disease in the last 20 years.

 

Yet when I first opened my medical practice in the mid 80s, cholesterol, and the fear that yours was too high was rarely talked about.

 

Somewhere along the way however, cholesterol became a household word – something that you must keep as low as possible, or suffer the consequences.
