Cholesterol Not Included In Latest Dietary Guidelines

By

 

The 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans report is not expected to include suggested levels of daily cholesterol intake.

The last edition of the report from 2010 included a recommendation of less than 300 mg of cholesterol a day. That suggestion will not be in the new report after new research showed that most of the cholesterol in the human body does not come from food.

“Cholesterol in the diet has almost no chance that it’s going to be absorbed and contribute to your heart disease,” said Thomas Dayspring, director of cardiovascular education at the Foundation for Health Improvement and Technology.
