There’s a move for the United States to FINALLY REVERSE Cholesterol WARNINGS!
For over forty years, the U.S government has recommended limiting cholesterol to 300mg per day (one egg has about 185 mg). This limitation is not supported by science.
Walter Willett, chair of the nutrition department at the Harvard School of Public Health, also called the turnaround on cholesterol a “reasonable move.” “There’s been a shift of thinking,” he said.
Some nutritionists said lifting the cholesterol warning is long overdue, noting that the United States is out-of-step with other countries, where diet guidelines do not single out cholesterol. Others support maintaining a warning.
But the change on dietary cholesterol also shows how the complexity of nutrition science and the lack of definitive research can contribute to confusion for Americans, Nigerians and the world at large who, while seeking guidance on what to eat, often find themselves afloat in conflicting advice.

Sources recently told the Washington Post the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee will exclude cholesterol warnings from its final report, which is due in 2 weeks. This report strongly influences USDA’s MyPlate.
Note: The new view on cholesterol in food does not reverse warnings about high levels of “bad” cholesterol in the blood, which have been linked to heart disease. Moreover, some experts warned that people with particular health problems, such as diabetes, should continue to avoid cholesterol-rich diets.
My friends it is important we note that the Nutritional Renaissance is DAWNING!
