Five Minute Food Facts – Cholesterol

FEATURING

Amanda Hayes

INTRODUCTION

Let me introduce you to our guest, Amanda Hayes.

This is the fourth and final episode of my four part series about dietary fats. Today I look at cholesterol, including the essential roles it plays in our bodies – it is a precursor for bile acids and for steroid hormones such as estrogen and testosterone – and its association with heart disease.

I discuss the different types of cholesterol as it can be confusing and I disabuse the myth that dietary cholesterol causes high blood cholesterol.

I hope that you enjoy this episode as much as I did making it, and don’t be shy, let me know what you think!
