When it comes to cholesterol, it seems the guidelines change regularly. We are told foods that are off-limits one year, are ok for you the next. What’s considered high cholesterol levels one day is considered not so bad the next.
What we do know is that heart disease is the #1 leading killer in the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control and a heart healthy lifestyle tilts the odds of longevity in a more favorable direction.
While exercise, diet and genetics all play an important role, avoiding certain foods high can often help us to feel better physically and emotionally. Always consult with your physician for medical advice.
