What Does 100% Of Your Daily Value Of Cholesterol Look Like?

Healthline published an article that shows what 100% of your daily value of cholesterol looks like. It's no secret that eating fatty foods raises your bad cholesterol level, also known as LDL. An elevated LDL clogs up your arteries and makes it difficult for your heart to do its job. Potentially, it could lead to heart disease.

While a deep-fried Twinkie at the county fair is an obvious no-no, other high cholesterol culprits may be sneaking into your diet. Check out what that number looks like in terms of everyday food items.

This article is confusing saturated fat with cholesterol -- the two are different. Eggs, for example, contain lots of cholesterol, but very little saturated fat.

In addition, the current thinking is that dietary cholesterol has relatively little effect on blood cholesterol.
