The U.S. Government has now uplifted the warnings about Cholesterol. There was a notion prevalent from a decade that high cholesterol level in the body can lead to heart-related diseases. The medical companies have charged more than 2 trillion USD to the customers in the name of cholesterol level test in the last ten years. The nation’s advisory panel has decided that having cholesterol diet does not lead to the heart problem.
The research authorities have failed in their findings of cholesterol, and this has cost too much the customers who were actually fit and healthy. Cholesterol has been finally removed from the list of severe health problems. The health advisory panel has said that the cholesterol in the diet is no longer a matter of concern.
The high cholesterol level in the blood was considered to be a dreadful disease which can ultimately cause arteries clogging or heart disease. It was being warned to eat foods like egg, butter, oil, and dairy products in a limited amount to maintain the cholesterol levels in the body. There was a huge decline in the consumption of eggs by the Americans over the last decade.
The US Department of Agriculture, which is in charge of updating the rules every five years, expressed in its discoveries for 2015: “Beforehand, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans prescribed that cholesterol consumption be restricted to 300 mg/day.
“The 2015 DGAC won’t present this suggestion on the grounds that accessible proof demonstrates no direct connection between utilization of dietary cholesterol and serum (blood) cholesterol, steady with the AHA/ACC (American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology)
The new research says on cholesterol in food have not any direct link with the heart disease, it has been found that many heart patients have normal cholesterol level in their body. But some health experts have warned the people who have heart problems like diabetes, should continue to avoid sugar and fatty foods.
What are the actual facts about Cholesterol?
Our liver produces the maximum amount of cholesterol inside our body. Cholesterol plays a vital role in the functioning of our body as our brain is 20% made up of cholesterols, and it does help in the functioning of the nerve cells. Also, Cholesterol is the main element in the formation of steroid hormones, including estrogen, testosterone, and corticosteroids. There is no direct link between saturated fats and high cholesterol level to cardiovascular disease. In fact, the high cholesterol level shows the liver is working well. There is nothing called bad cholesterols, our body needs 950 mg of cholesterol to function for regular metabolism of the body. The foods only supply 15% of the cholesterol to the body, rest production is done by the liver.
The reality is that Cholesterol neither can cause nor can stop heart attacks. This research has entirely reversed the facts about Cholesterol being said earlier. This change has made many scientists wonder and scratch their heads, how this could be this missing in these years. But this is what science has been known for.
