Are there benefits from monounsaturated fat? I'm eating macadamia nuts, and it has 20g mono & 3.5g saturated fat (24g total fat) per serving.
Good fat...: Yes...It is a better type of fat...We need fat in our diet, but unfortunately much of what we get is saturated fat--meaning from animal products. Often from nuts/plants, we get monosurated fat, a good thing. This fat is not as dangerous--not causing much damage to your blood vessels etc...So, monosaturated fat is a better fat to get. Good luck..Stay healthy. ...Read more

In general, is eating a daily 4 oz. Can of tuna fish packed in oil any better than tuna packed in water to try to lower chloresterol? Differences?
Great question: That's a very interesting question! it hasn't been studied to my knowledge. On the one hand, fish oil will raise total cholesterol but preferentially raises HDL (good) cholesterol.

So we don't know! one thing we do know: tuna in oil has more calories than water. ...Read more

Any concern with eating one 4 oz. Small can of tuna fish for lunch each day that contains 6 percent dv (20 mgs.) of chloresterol in each can?
Not likely,,: I don't know what your cholesterol is but if you're eating this every day you're likely helping yourself as this is fish which have omega 3 fatty acids which are very good for your circulation and seem to help stop heart disease, etc..
