The Food Bible

Only animal origin foods contain cholesterol. It is found in eggs, dairy products, meat, poultry, fish, and shellfish. Egg yolks and organ meats (liver, kidney and brain) are particularly rich sources of cholesterol. High-fat dairy products, meat, and poultry all have similar amounts of cholesterol. Fish generally has less cholesterol, but shellfish varies in cholesterol content. Foods of plant origin, like fruits, vegetables, grains, cereals, nuts, and seeds, contain no cholesterol. Since cholesterol is not a fat, you can find it in both high-fat and low-fat animal foods. For instance, organ meats, like liver, are low in fat, but are high in cholesterol.

Because many foods such as dairy products and some meats are high in both saturated fat and cholesterol, it is important to limit the amount of these high-fat foods that you eat, choosing lean meats and low-fat dairy products whenever possible.

I have to agree with Guest. seed oils and vegetable oils are bad for you. Eat like Lord Krishna of the Sri Bhagvatam for a few months [butter, desi ghee, kaleji, rice, vegetables, fruits, salt] and all your problems will go away. Do not touch seed oils, vegetable oils or fish oils. If you search for the harmful effects of these oils there is plenty of info on the internet.

Poppycock! Animal fats are what we have eaten over the entire evolution of the human body. We know how to process them. Some unsaturated fats have been in our diet over the millenia, bu tnot much. Vegetable oils are a new thing [proposed by "marketing" as being good for us - ie cheap to manufacture and easy to line their pockets] and our bodies haven't adapted to processing these properly, leading to stored fat and the obesity epidemic we are seeing right now...
