Hi Is it true that Cholesterol is not a nutrient of concern now. Which is to say there is notthing like cholesterol is high. I have been fw msgs. Thx.

No, that is not true. As it has been since...forever!..cholesterol is needed to make hormones, vitamin D and substances that help digest foods. Our bodies make all the cholesterol we need.The controversy is over what is a healthy amount of cholesterol to EAT. While the US Dietary Guidelines now do not give a cholesterol limit, they still say "eat as little..as possible." Veggies, fruit, grains don't have it. Eat those!
