Resources for Fats and Cholesterol

Understanding Trans Fat

Research indicates that trans fat raises LDL cholesterol. You can find out how much trans fat a food contains by checking the label.

Putting Healthy Fats on Your Plate

Certain types of fats can actually help your heart, so you don't need to avoid fat altogether. Instead, watch how much and what type you eat.

Beyond Cholesterol

Scientists have learned that other substances may give you and your doctor new clues about your heart disease risk. And that's good news. Coronary heart disease, in which fatty deposits build up in your arteries, is the nation's top killer.

Children and Cholesterol

If you, your parents or your parents' siblings had a heart attack before age 55, you should have your child's cholesterol tested.

The Egg Bounces Back

Eggs are a great protein source. If you're on a diet, protein helps satisfy your hunger.
