DESCRIPTION: The negative impact of red meat on our cholesterol profile may be similar to that of white meat.
Thought chicken was a low fat food? It used to be, but not any more. See: Does Eating Obesity Cause Obesity? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/does-eating-obesity-cause-obesity/) It may be one of the reasons we may be getting fatter as well: Chicken Big: Poultry and Obesity (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/Chicken-Big-Poultry-and-Obesity).
Isn’t protein just protein? How does our body know if it’s coming from a plant or an animal? How could it have different effects on cardiovascular risk? See Protein and Heart Disease (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/protein-and-heart-disease/), another reason why Plant Protein [is] Preferable (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/plant-protein-preferable/).
I used that same Coke/Pepsi comparison in my analysis of another body of Beef-funded research: BOLD Indeed: Beef Lowers Cholesterol? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/bold-indeed-beef-lowers-cholesterol/)
More on the role of oxidized cholesterol in Does Cholesterol Size Matter? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/does-cholesterol-size-matter/) and Arterial Acne (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/arterial-acne/).
Lowering cholesterol is as simple as reducing ones intake of three things; and the lower, perhaps, the better: Trans Fat, Saturated Fat, and Cholesterol: Tolerable Upper Intake of Zero (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/trans-fat-saturated-fat-and-cholesterol-tolerable-upper-intake-of-zero/).
What about those news stories on the vindication of saturated fat? See the sneaky science in The Saturated Fat Studies: Buttering Up the Public (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-saturated-fat-studies-buttering-up-the-public/) and The Saturated Fat Studies: Set Up to Fail (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-saturated-fat-studies-set-up-to-fail/).
