You don't get cholesterol by eating it. Your body makes it. Starve the metabolic pathways and you get no cholesterol. They used to think that eggs (high in cholesterol) would raise your levels, but, like much "common sense" studies showed no such correlation.

Whatever animals eat, are basically plant products. Intermediary metabolic paths are used by cells to produce new molecules by breakdown and combinations of molecules of plant origin. In animal cells cholesterol synthesis starts with one molecule of acetyl CoA and one molecule of acetoacetyl-CoA, which produce mevalonate. This is the regulated, rate-limiting and irreversible step in cholesterol synthesis. Long chain of events synthesize cholesterol.

Hi from France ♫ As long as vegetable oils are not ' fried ', they don't increase cholesterol. They must be ate cold / no fried so, otherwise they are bad. Best Cat.
