From what I recall, the latest research has shown that its mostly saturated fats that raise cholesterol, not the actual cholesterol in the food we eat. Our bodies are good at converting saturated fat into bad cholesterol. Eggs and shellfish, which are high in cholesterol, but low in saturated fat, are now supposed to be healthy(er) than they were, and healthy in moderation.Of course, given that chocolate, coffee and alcohol are all now healthy in moderation, I'm reminded of this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2fYguIX17Q
