New dietary recommendations are due later this year from the U.S. government, and big changes could be coming for cholesterol.

A preliminary document from the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, released in December and reported this week by the Washington Post, states that “cholesterol is not considered a nutrient of concern for overconsumption.” That one sentence could drastically change the way Americans think about cholesterol-containing foods, like eggs, shrimp, butter and cheese. If the stance is adopted in forthcoming recommendations from the USDA and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which jointly set national nutrition guidelines, it may mean a vast departure from guidelines set just five years ago. The 2010 dietary guidelines put cholesterol under the “foods and food components to reduce” category, and the guidelines advise that people eat less than 300 mg per day. (Eggs, a source of dietary cholesterol, contain about 164 mg each.)

I bet in a few years, a new study will come out that will be the total opposite of this one.

Don't blame people for being confused.

from what I know, SUGAR is what's causing artery plaque, especially Fructose.

Well it's not necessarily sugar.

Here's the break down.

The Artery plaque is created as a product of inflammation.

Inflammation breaks parts of the arteries and your body desperately needs to repair them. The only substance your body can use is fatty lipids in order to travel our watery blood since water and oil/fat doesn't mix.

The cholesterol is used to repair the arterial wall but the plaque is left over.

And what's ironic is Low-cholesterol foods do more damage
