"Cholesterol" - continued
Yesterday we discovered that our own body makes "cholesterol" for optimal health.
And then we learned that it's the "cholesterol" from the food we eat that causes all the problems of "high" cholesterol, heart disease and stroke.
Well . . . today let's continue . . .
So what foods interfere with our health and "cholesterol" levels???
Well . . . that would be . . .
Fatty cuts of red meat like steaks, beef roasts, ribs, pork chops and ground beef
Full fat dairy products like milk, cream, cheese and yogurts
Deep fried fast foods
Processed foods like biscuits, pastries and sweets
Takeaway foods like hamburgers and pizza
Many cooking oil and butter
Okay . . . so now let's figure out what the difference between "bad", "good" and "total" cholesterol are . . . because many conventional doctors just give us a number and don't really explain what all this means.
Now . . . as a general rule . . . HDL (high-density lipoprotein) is considered "good" cholesterol and it absorbs by the body and carried back to the liver. The liver then flushes it out of the body. And "high" levels can lower the risk of heart disease and stroke.
Okay . . . now LDL (low-density lipoprotein) is considered "bad" cholesterol because LDL carries cholesterol directly to our "arteries".
