There is strong evidence to suggest that foods that are high in cholesterol, but low in saturated fat, have little impact on our cholesterol levels. Examples of these foods are eggs, shellfish, liver and kidney.
Eggs and cholesterol
All major UK heart and advisory bodies have removed the previous limits on egg consumption due to their cholesterol content.
Dietary cholesterol does not affect most of the population BUT about 10% of the population (especially those with familial hypercholesterolaemia) are high absorbers and will have a problem with cholesterol containing foods.
