Cholesterol-Rich Foods Won’t Put Your Heart At Risk

| June 18, 2015 | Comments (0)

We’ve said this many times before: cholesterol and saturated fat consumption has been unfairly condemned for decades as being bad for our hearts and overall health.

For the past half century, conventional dietary advice told us to avoid foods that increase cholesterol levels, like foods containing saturated fats (found in meat, dairy products, eggs, coconut and palm oil).
