Washington: Avocados raise good cholesterol levels that boost heart health, say experts. What’s more, there is no harm in including eggs in a heart patient’s diet, the experts added. Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith said that avocados can lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol. And CBS News Medical Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton agreed with the fact. “Avocados are a good source of fat/cholesterol. They have the unsaturated fats, which are good for us. So therefore they can raise the HDL, the Harry or healthy cholesterol and lowerer the LDL - the lousy cholesterol," CBS News quoted Ashton as saying.
She further added that even cholesterol-free food could raise cholesterol, saying: “You can`t confuse what`s on the label in terms of cholesterol and fat. And remember that transfats, which can be hidden in a lot of packaged foods, can increase your cholesterol.” ANI
