Thanks for adding this important fact to the cholesterol question:
Also, avoid foods that are high in saturated fats and trans fat because they can raise your LDL even though they aren't considered "high cholesterol" foods.
Our bodies do need 'healthy fats'. We can get these from eating whole fruits and vegetables and also from high quality cold pressed oils such as olive and coconut to name two of my favorites. One caution: Do not cook using olive oil. Heating olive oil to cooking temperatures will destroy the healthy state of this oil. It is better to add oils to cooked foods just before serving or better yet add them to RAW FOODS!
