Something many of us have been trying to avoid is now okay to eat.
The nation’s top nutrition panel is dropping its guidelines about avoiding foods that are high in cholesterol.
The new finding by the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee means that cholesterol is no longer listed as a “nutrient of concern.”
It’s a move that reverses nearly 40 years of government warnings about cholesterol-rich foods.
Researchers now believe that eating foods like eggs, butter, steaks, shrimp and lobster may not significantly impact the level of cholesterol in the blood or increase the risk of heart disease.
