In bypass surgery, the solid, white plaque (Atherosclerosis) that they pull out of arteries always comes back from the lab as "Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. -People who don't eat it don't have it built up in their arteries.

If you look around the world, the countries with the lowest rates of life-threatening disease (specifically heart disease, diabetes and cancer) are also the ones that consume the least amount of animal products. -This is no coincidence. A plant-based, low-fat diet will keep you away from the Dr. and off of meds better than any other.
When it comes to cholesterol in the arteries, it is all about particle size. There are large medium and small and yes the small ones are the problem. Any one can get their cholesterol particle size checked with a simple blood test. If you are prone to small particles you would be wise to watch your intake of cholesterol. Otherwise eat in moderation and all is good (usually).

I'm totally on the same page as streamline when it comes to this. "Total Cholesterol" as a biomarker for health and coronary heart disease risk is completely over-rated.. it's actually worse than useless, it's harmful when it is then politicized and "low-cholesterol" is actively promoted by policymakers, as we now see en-masse with statins and low-fat frankenfoods. I personally eat a LCHF diet and completely avoid all sugars and grains, and also all seed oils.

Too much to explain really, but if you believe fat is fattening, or that high cholesterol is bad for you, I beseech you to watch these videos:
