Here’s a secret you won’t hear many other places:
The cholesterol content of a food is not what leads to high cholesterol.
Dietary science is a very complex and confusing area of study. So much so that even many of the “experts” don’t have a firm grasp on it.
Many oversimplify the topic and make nutritional suggestions that don’t work, or could possibly exacerbate problems. (Any chance you’ve been snookered by some of these bad tips?)
Here’s an example to think about:
There is a brand of cheese crackers on the market. The packaging clearly states that this product contains 0 grams of cholesterol.
As we’ve said before, the nutrition facts on your favorite foods are misleading thanks to the Food and Drug Administration’s less-than-literal interpretation of the number zero.
But regardless, if you were to eat a serving of this snack every day for a few months, your blood cholesterol level would go through the roof.
Because the cholesterol content of a product is completely irrelevant.
Many foods containing no cholesterol at all have ingredients that cause cholesterol to form in your body.
By now you’re probably wondering how anyone can find foods that actually lower cholesterol. Admittedly, this could be nearly impossible if you stick to the flawed conventions of typical dietary health.
Luckily, there are now many experts in the field who have managed to separate the facts from the fiction when it comes to high cholesterol. Get Rid of High Cholesterol has consolidated all of the best information, and wants to pass this knowledge onto you.

There are a lot of misconceptions about high cholesterol foods, and the simple truth is that the bland, boring diet your doctor recommended may not be doing you any good. In fact, it may actually be putting you more at risk for heart disease and clogged arteries.
