ISA 2015 Prof. Martijn Katan (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) responds to the report of the US 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee stating that cholesterol intake does not raise serum LDL-c. Older evidence from randomised trials arguing this statement seems to be forgotten.
Note: Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, Part D. Chapter 1: Food and Nutrient Intakes, and Health: Current Status and Trends: "Cholesterol is not a nutrient of concern for overconsumption."
