In this review Fernandez found:
(a) Current epidemiologic data have clearly demonstrated that increasing concentrations of dietary cholesterol are not correlated with increased risk for heart disease.
(b) Dietary cholesterol reduces circulating levels of (the dangerous) small, dense LDL cholesterol particles, thereby lowering the risk of heart disease.
Professor Fernandez suggests the guidelines for dietary cholesterol should be revisited
