No Appreciable Relationship Between Dietary Cholesterol and Blood Cholesterol
Majid Ali, M.D.
Cholesterol content in the food is not dangerous after all. The cholesterol experts finally reverse their position, but without eating crow.
Consider the following text from The New York Times of February 19, 2015:
“First, last fall, experts on the committee (The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee) that develops the country’s dietary guidelines acknowledged that they had ditched the low-fat diet. On Thursday, that committee’s report was released with an even bigger change: It lifted the longstanding caps on dietary cholesterol, saying there was “no appreciable relationship” between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol. Americans, it seems, had needlessly been avoiding egg yolks, liver and shellfish for decades. The new guidelines, the first to be issued in five years, will influence everything from school lunches to doctors’ dieting advice.”
“no appreciable relationship” between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol.”
Somebody pass some crow, please!
