Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch  and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?

Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level.

Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more

Are fruit juices with high fructose corn syrup unhealthy for my child?

Not necessarily: There is no single diet that is best for everyone.
