Lightbulb Dietary cholesterol is not the heart killer, say docs

Now what? So should one eat eggs with the yolk and red meat? Or should one ... aaah... you decide .. or better still, ask your doctor!!

But it makes sense to avoid butter dripping toast and parathas. That's common sense and the article says so too.

Dietary cholesterol is not the heart killer, say docs

MUMBAI: If you shunned meat because its cholesterol content could adversely affect your heart, you were wrong. If you felt an egg a day is unhealthy, think again. New nutrition guidelines released in the US say that cholesterol-rich foodóbe it an egg, meat or milkóis not a recipe for a health disaster. The problem arises when cholesterol-containing foods are eaten along with foods that are high in saturated fats: Eggs eaten along with sausages and butter-dripping toast could be an issue.

Americans have been avoiding dietary cholesterol for the fear of increasing their risk of heart disease. "But there is nothing to show a relationship between increased dietary cholesterol intake and incidence of coronary heart disease,'' say researchers.

Nutritionist Shilpa Joshi says: "The body produces the bulk of its cholesterol needs. And it's only a meagre 200-300 milligrams of cholesterol-containing food that one needs to take in.'' The problem arises when unsaturated fat is eaten in excess. "When excess of saturated fat is eaten, the liver tends to convert some into cholesterol that leads to the beginning of heart disease,'' said cardiologist Dr A B Mehta.

Endocrinologist Dr Anoop Misra says Indian foods like parathas and puris dripping in ghee contribute so much unsaturated fat that it is converted into cholesterol. "Lay persons always make a mistake between cholesterol and fat. They would willingly buy oil that claims to have zero cholesterol but has high saturated fats,'' says Misra.

Then there is the genetic factor. Mehta adds, "There will always be a person who has a heavy cholesterol count but a healthy heart.There could be a person with low cholesterol who develops heart disease.'' He blames this on the 'permeability factor' that entrenches the bad cholesterol along arterial walls, creating plaque.

Diet plays an important role. As fast food culture catches on, there is a corresponding rise in heart diseases, say doctors. The healthy mantra is : Keep out the fat and not necessarily the dietary cholesterol.

ashdoc, being our resident doctor, can you please shed some light?

I ask because I really love to have half fried egg with the yolk too, but I have given that up now for more than 3 years. Only egg whites.

Biggest motivation for staying healthy and taking care of cholestrol and triglycerides is to ensure that your dick works fine. Ask any doctor, the moment you get on cholestrol lowering drugs and heart related drugs your dick is screwed! After all what does a man live for? For his belly and what's four fingers distance below his belly (Aadmi peat ke liye aur chaar ungli neeche ke liye to jita hain)
