So I had a PCI to put in a few stents. Doing great. But I'm on statins to lower my cholesterol (which was never really all that high). My question is about diet and cholesterol. Recent findings suggest that high cholesterol foods do NOT increase blood cholesterol. The bad stuff for blood cholesterol is saturated fats. So now we're told to avoid saturated fats AND foods that are high in cholesterol. Why the latter? Either dietary cholesterol makes a difference in blood cholesterol, or it doesn't. Truth, anyone?
