Can you eat too much cholesterol?

Do you have high cholesterol?

In that case you already know that it’s generally not considered a good thing.

So do you need to worry about colestrol?

This is a vexed question and one that both sides of the medical community seem to argue about. On the one hand there are plenty of people who say that dietary cholesterol is not what causes the problems, but the cholesterol we manufacture in our own bodies.

On the other hand there are experts who suggest you treat any foods high in cholesterol with a fear and loathing normally reserved for sharks – in other words avoid at all costs.

The experts who claim that dietary cholesterol is not as big a problem as many people think, say this:

Our normal daily usage of cholesterol is more than we actually eat. So our bodies produce the shortfall. If we eat foods high in cholesterol then our bodies make less since the shorftall is less. When we reduce, or eliminate foods high in cholesterol, you know the usual suspects, egg, butter, dairy, then the body has to crank its own production up a notch. In other words the body self-regulates, which makes sense, but is it right?

It’s claimed that most of the time eating foods high in cholesterol does very little to our blood cholesterol levels. So a lower cholesterol diet may not help you all that much after all.

All of that is great, but what do you if you’re not sure which side to believe? After all, they can’t both be right, can they?

This is where you should consult your own doctor. High cholesterol levels, if left unchecked, can be very detrimental to your health, so it pays to find out as much as you can about opposing views. Ultimately you’re going to have to make your own choice, in conjunction with advice from your doctor, but at least if you’re well informed about the issues you can make your choice from a position of knowledge.
