Contrary to common belief, cholesterol itself isn't that bad. It is a fatlike substance that your body creates and also absorbs from the food you eat. In fact, your body cannot function properly without cholesterol. However, too much cholesterol creates a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, the main causes of mortality in many countries around the world. View the table of cholesterol content in foods now.
It should be mentioned that the vast majority of doctors and medical scientists consider that there is a link between cholesterol and atherosclerosis; however a small group of scientists, united in The International Network of Cholesterol Skeptics, questions the link.
There are several factors that may cause high cholesterol levels: diets that are high in saturated or trans fats and salt, being overweight or obese, smoking, not enough physical activity, inherited (genetic) tendencies, and old age. Eating a heart-friendly diet is critical to keeping cholesterol levels under control. To assist you in your diet, this app contains a table of cholesterol content. In our other app you can find a table of the glycemic index of foods. Both apps are the good way to keep control over what you eat.
Note: This application is not intended as a substitute for professional medical care. Only your doctor can diagnose and treat a medical problem. For specific medical advice, diagnoses, and treatment, please consult your doctor.
So, do you know what you eat? Find out now! Install the app and use it for free to take control of your health.
What wikipedia tells us about the cholesterol sources?
Animal fats are complex mixtures of triglycerides, with lesser amounts of phospholipids and cholesterol. As a consequence, all foods containing animal fat contain cholesterol to varying extents. Major dietary sources of cholesterol include cheese, egg yolks, beef, pork, poultry, fish, and shrimp. Human breast milk also contains significant quantities of cholesterol.
From a dietary perspective, cholesterol is not found in significant amounts in plant sources. In addition, plant products such as flax seeds and peanuts contain cholesterol-like compounds called phytosterols, which are believed to compete with cholesterol for absorption in the intestines.
Fat intake also plays a role in blood-cholesterol levels. Trans fats have been shown to reduce levels of HDL while increasing levels of LDL (which is bad). Based on such evidence and evidence implicating low HDL and high LDL levels in cardiovascular disease (see Hypercholesterolemia), many health authorities advocate reducing LDL cholesterol through changes in diet in addition to other lifestyle modifications.
