|Title||The true fact about cholesterol|
|Description||Almost everyone thinks that cholesterol is a bad thing and should be avoided, but not all cholesterol is bad. Because our body also still needs a good cholesterol intake. Here is a myth circulating in the community about cholesterol, as reported by MSN, Monday (3/8/2009): Myth 1: Americans have the highest cholesterol in the world. During this time many people know that Americans have the highest cholesterol. But in fact, according to WHO data, American men ranked 83rd in the world and American women ranked 81, on average both have a cholesterol level of 197 mg / dl just slightly below the high risk category border. Compared to other countries, the average Colombian consume 244mg / dl cholesterol and the women of Israel, Libya, Norway, and Uruguay have an average cholesterol consumption of 232mg / dl. Myth 2: Eggs are harmful It is true eggs contain cholesterol of 200 mg which is two thirds of the recommended limit of 300 mg. Only some cholesterol in the body can increase cholesterol in the bloodstream. Consuming one or two eggs in a while for a week is not harmful, in fact eggs are a potential source of protein and contain unsaturated fats commonly referred to as good fats. Myth 3: A healthy diet is containing 0 mg of cholesterol Not all foods that contain cholesterol are bad. Cholesterol is two good cholesterol called HDL (high-density lipoprotein) and bad cholesterol called LDL (low-density lipoprotein). What to watch out for is the LDL's bad cholesterol intake normally found in foods containing trans fats (contained in packaged foods) and saturated fats (which are usually found in animal products and dairy products). This type of cholesterol that must be regulated so that consumption is not excessive. Myth 4: Cholesterol is always bad When someone hears the word cholesterol must immediately think something bad. High cholesterol is harmful, but cholesterol itself is also important for some body processes, ranging from limiting nerve cells in the brain in developing structures for cell membranes. About 75 percent of the cholesterol in the blood is made by the liver and other cells in the body. The role of cholesterol in heart disease is often misguided. Cholesterol is brought through the bloodstream with low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). And that causes heart disease is if excessive LDL levels will settle on the blood vessels that cause blockage. Myth 5: Adult cholesterol problems Many people think that high cholesterol is a problem that will be experienced by people who have grown up, but it turns out cholesterol problems can also be experienced by children. The American Academy of Pediatrics issues recommended regulations for children who are overweight, have high blood pressure or have a family history of heart disease for cholesterol tests from the age of two. Children who have high cholesterol should be on a cholesterol diet and should not consume more than 200mg of cholesterol per day. Consuming fiber and exercising is also recommended for these children. please visit men's best weight loss program|
