Contrary to common belief, cholesterol itself isn't that bad. It is a fatlike substance that your body creates and also absorbs from the food you eat. In fact, your body cannot function properly without cholesterol. However, too much cholesterol creates a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, the main causes of mortality in many countries around the world. View the table of cholesterol content in foods now.
It should be mentioned that the vast majority of doctors and medical scientists consider that there is a link between cholesterol and atherosclerosis; however a small group of scientists, united in The International Network of Cholesterol Skeptics, questions the link.

What wikipedia tells us about the cholesterol sources?
Animal fats are complex mixtures of triglycerides, with lesser amounts of phospholipids and cholesterol. As a consequence, all foods containing animal fat contain cholesterol to varying extents. Major dietary sources of cholesterol include cheese, egg yolks, beef, pork, poultry, fish, and shrimp. Human breast milk also contains significant quantities of cholesterol.
From a dietary perspective, cholesterol is not found in significant amounts in plant sources. In addition, plant products such as flax seeds and peanuts contain cholesterol-like compounds called phytosterols, which are believed to compete with cholesterol for absorption in the intestines.
Fat intake also plays a role in blood-cholesterol levels. Trans fats have been shown to reduce levels of HDL while increasing levels of LDL (which is bad). Based on such evidence and evidence implicating low HDL and high LDL levels in cardiovascular disease (see Hypercholesterolemia), many health authorities advocate reducing LDL cholesterol through changes in diet in addition to other lifestyle modifications.

El colesterol es un compuesto que lleva a cabo funciones esenciales en el cuerpo humano, lo que lo hace que sea un componente indispensable del cuerpo. A pesar de su importancia, un nivel saludable de colesterol equivale a una salud cardiovascular. Un alto índice de colesterol en la sangre puede ocasionar enfermedades del sistema cardiovascular. De hecho, es el primer responsable de las muertes cardíacas en los países desarrollados.
Una de las mejores maneras de bajar el colesterol naturalmente es cambiar la dieta y el estilo de vida. La dieta y el estilo de vida son dos factores importantes para regular el nivel de colesterol. Una dieta alta en grasas aumenta el colesterol LDL y reduce el colesterol HDL creando así desequilibrio en los niveles del cuerpo. Esto aumenta la probabilidad de acumulación de colesterol en las paredes de las arterias. Al reducir la ingesta de alimentos altos en grasa, se estaría disminuyendo los niveles de colesterol de forma natural.
