On the contrary, dietary cholesterol has no effect on its level in the body at all. The body always produces several times more of it than can be taken in through the diet because it has many functions and is an essential building block for hormones and cells, especially nerve and brain cells. Elevated blood levels are mainly a sign of damage to blood vessels. In such case, cholesterol is used as a repair material, but this is obviously not a sustainable long-term solution. Don’t believe the medical myths about cholesterol. 🙂
