    U.S. Government Lifts Restrictions on Dietary Cholesterol
    Justin Smith
    February 1, 2016
    Recently, the secretaries of health and agriculture in the United States revised dietary guidelines and said that dietary cholesterol was “no longer a nutrient of concern”.

    The committees have finally acknowledged that there is no link between the amount of cholesterol that is eaten and the level of cholesterol in the blood. This change to the dietary guidelines was suggested last year, and was officially implemented during the first week of January this year.

    [​IMG]
    As I mentioned in my book, the dietary cholesterol guidelines came out of the cholesterol consensus conference in 1984 - a recommendation was published not to consume more than 250-300mg of cholesterol per day - that’s about the amount of cholesterol found in one egg.

    This recommendation was introduced despite the fact that there was absolutely no evidence at all that dietary cholesterol influences blood cholesterol levels. Something that was also covered extensively in Dr Uffe Ravnskov’s classic text The Cholesterol Myths.

    In fact, even the UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey, published in 2001, stated that “dietary cholesterol has a relatively small and variable effect on blood cholesterol levels”.

    Although this change in the guidelines is a step in the right direction, it really just illustrates the absurdness of the cholesterol idea (or lipid hypothesis) because the authorities are still clinging to the idea that cholesterol and saturated fat causes heart disease.

    Of course, its not easy for the authorities to accept that they got it wrong for so long, and its not easy for those people who have built a career out of demonising cholesterol either. Like Dr John McDougall (author of several books promoting the avoidance of saturated fat and cholesterol) who has joined a small group of physicians who are suing the agriculture secretary over the change in the guidelines.

    I've always thought this was dubious at best.
    My grandmas ate everything she wasn't supposed to and lived a very long life.
    I think it's 80% genetics and 20% luck.
    People are like cars- some burn oil and go 400K miles, others never do and crap out at 100K.

    :happywave: CHRIZA!!!!!

    I hate to disagree on your first post back but I had Smashburger last week and it is my new favorite cheeseburger place. And I have been eating Five Guys for 20+ years, since before they were even a chain at the original spot in Alexandria, Virginia.

    We're that much closer to having steaks and ice cream sundaes found to be quality, recommended nutrients, like Woody Allen predicted in "Sleeper"! :beer:

    Smashburger is really good. Smashing the burger and seering the patty makes a nice taste. Smashburger fries can go to hell. Like a friggin toothpick.

    5 guys is great. Although, in not a fan of their bun. It ends up being overwhelmed by the toppings and gets smushed/soggy. The fries are amazing. Cooking in peanut oil makes a huge difference.

    You guys are probably right. I was so excited about the burger I admit I didn't pay attention to the fries :doh:

    I do love Five Guys fries. They remind me of Boardwalk Fries. Mmmmm love vinegar on them too

    if you dont have an IN-N-OUT around, Five Guys is a good substitute for a chain burger. ttheir fries are great, even better than Steak Escapes fries.
