Bring on the omelettes! The U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has changed its stance on high cholesterol food.
The committee says cholesterol is no longer considered a "nutrient of concern" and dropped its recommended limit of 300 milligrams per day for adults.
The panel points to findings showing high cholesterol foods don't actually have much affect on cholesterol levels in the bloodstream. While that understandably sounds confusing, the panel warned saturated fats are the real culprit.
