Which Has More Cholesterol?

Since I have a history of heart problems in my family, I'm really conscious about foods high in cholesterol.

Take this quiz to find out.

Actually, award, breastmilk is much lower in fat than cow's milk, so regardless of the percentage of the fat that's cholesterol, it's still not that much. Most of cholesterol is genetic, mine is really low despite eating eggs and cheese basically every day. Diet and exercise also figure in, and fiber and flaxseed oil may help bring down cholesterol, too. The obesity epidemic, not just diet but sedentary lifestyle and the other complications that come with it, like diabetes, all cause increased heart disease. Also, the longer people live, the more of them die of heart disease, period, so longer life spans sorta turn into increased heart disease risk.

If Cholesterol is so bad 4 ur heart why is it that over the last 100 years as people have gone from animal sources to more vegetable sources for their foods, butter to margarine and lard to vegetable oil etc., heart disease has become much more prevalent? If Cholesterol is so bad for your heart why is butter better for you that margarine? If cholesterol is so bad for ur heart why do they now say that eggs are healthy for you? If cholesterol is so bad for your heart, why don't babies have heart disease, since breastmilk, one of the healthiest foods on earth, is 50% cholesterol? If cholesterol is so bad for you why is it that some drugs that successfully lower cholesterol cannot be proven to improve heart health? Dr.'s find cholesterol @ site of heart damage and think cholesterol caused it, but it's there to try to fix damage. This is a huge public health error, that's hurting a lot of people. But it sells a lot of statins;)

2/4. Since food cholesterol is only found in animal products, which I don't eat, I don't really worry about it.
