US to drop anti-cholesterol food guidelines!

Cholesterol in food is "no longer a concern"!   It is now OK to eat bacon and eggs!

U.S. may lower cholesterol's level of threat to health: report

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. advisory panel reviewing national dietary guidelines has decided to drop its caution against eating cholesterol-laden food, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday.

At a December meeting, the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee discussed its decision to no longer deem cholesterol a "nutrient of concern," according to the Washington Post.

What happened to those scientists and medical doctors who, for many decades have been signing and propagating the anti-cholesterol guidelines?  I wonder, what could be the overall health damage estimate, caused by those recommendations, to date?

OK to eat eggs but the sanctions on high fat foods like bacon have not been lifted. JC

That means I am violating those sanctions! I realized that not much would change until governments are sued for perpetrating health hazard.
