Study:Dietary cholesterol may not raise cardiovascular risk
Although you have long heard that dietary cholesterol is generally not good for the cardiovascular health, you might be surprised to know that high quality, well conducted research studies have shown no relationship between dietary cholesterol and cardiovascular disease. Learn more on the high-quality research published on circulation, that found no link between dietary cholesterol and heart disease. The opposite of what this study showed was long presumed to be true and was the basis of the erroneous diet heart hypothesis which in turn formed the basis for the many failed dietary recommendations such as the food pyramid.
Blood cholesterol and dietary cholesterol are not the same
The secret of understanding this seemingly contradictory finding, that blood cholesterol increases the heard disease risk but not the dietary cholesterol, is the fact that most of blood cholesterol, is manufactured in our own liver from glucose via Citric acid cycle or Krebs cycle. The stimulus for this liver pathway is the blood sugar control hormone, insulin, which increased dramatically in the last 50 years due to the low fat but high starch diet that was promoted as healthy (called insulin resistance).
