first of all, eating cholesterol doesnt translate to the cholesterol in your blood. if this "researcher" doesn't understand that, then his whole study is a sham. And correlation doesnt mean it is the cause. I'm sick of these researchers with their bogus information.

Nowadays anything you eat or drink is bad for you no matter what it is. Even oral sex has been said to cause tongue and throat cancer. I say enjoy life to the fullest and eat sensibly, that's all.

This month they're bad for you...next month they'll be good for you.

Eat sensibly, eat whatever you want. Life's too short not to enjoy it.


All too true. It's hard to take these guys seriously anymore.

Eat whatever you like, you're going to die anyway no matter what.


Correct! :) Fate will deal you what it has regardless ;)

Why would they? You could eat 'fry ups' for the next 50 years and live till god knows??? Similarly, you could avoid them for the next 50 years and live till god knows???

Then again, they could tell you your cholesterol level and you will get worried about it, but could die tomorrow regardless of that fact? So, meaningless really :)

next thing you know they will tell you is that watching a H bomb go off at a range of 100ft is better for you than watching a hand grenade explode at the same distance because your less likely to be hit by the shrapnel.

Serum cholesterol in me stays around 120-140 no matter what I eat, and my hdl/ldl ratio etc. are normal. My doctor is very jealous because he has a hard time staying under 250. Still, being a diabetic I have to watch my carbs etc.

Bottom line: genes count for a lot.
