Does Cheese Increase Your LDL Cholesterol?
Recently there has been a lot of controversy over whether a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol really affects cholesterol levels. A 2010 study reviewing the advice to reduce consumption of saturated fats found that eating a diet lower in saturated fat and cholesterol is still beneficial for reducing LDL cholesterol and cardiovascular disease risk. Note: This is only true if a low-fat diet is not replaced with a high sugar diet. A diet which lowers cholesterol requires reducing consumption of saturated fats, cholesterol, and refined sugar.
