Amazing Facts

Cholesterol acts as an antioxidant




More women over age 45 have high cholesterol
than men.


Recent research shows that cholesterol acts as
an antioxidant.


The liver is the place where this cholesterol
is manufactured and circulated into the blood stream flowing across the
body.


Doctors estimate that there are 15 million to
25 million Americans
that appear to have healthy total cholesterol scores, but are in fact
at risk of cardiovascular disease simply because their HDL is too low.
(Wall Street Journal)


Cholesterol is found only in animal products,
including meat, chicken, fish, eggs, organ meats and high-fat dairy
products.


Cholesterol is needed but not in excess. If
the level of cholesterol
increases too much there is a risk of stroke and heart attack.


One egg contains 213mg of cholesterol, all of
which is contained in the yolk.


To help reduce your cholesterol level, you
need to cut down on
saturated fats and trans fats and replace them with monounsaturated
fats and polyunsaturated fats.
