Cholesterol Is Finally Officially Removed From ‘Naughty’ List

Well, the article speaks for itself, however I would like to voice my appreciation to the researchers, doctors, and practitioners of natural medicine (herbalists!) who have been courageously and though in-line with the evidence against the grain of public health and established medical practices, encouraging this shift from an obsession on cholesterol onto the more significant culprits of inflammation and blood sugar (and I would add “stress”) for decades. Thank you for you perseverance. The question remains why did it take so long for the research to be put into practice? Might the discovery of anti-cholesterol drugs and their ease of marketability without significant lifestyle changes be a culprit? Reducing sugar, inflammation, and stress require far more engaged patients along with increased support from health care practitioners (which requires time and knowledge of nutrition), and are less conducive to simple pharmacological interventions (no magic pills)…In any case this change in USDA recommendations is good new as it places the attention where it needs to be.

The US government has finally accepted that cholesterol is not a ‘nutrient of concern’, doing a U-turn on their warnings.
