|Is It Safe To Eat Shrimps If We Suffer From High Cholesterol?|
The fact is that shrimp have a high level of cholesterol: dietary cholesterol. Foods that are high in dietary cholesterol do not necessarily increase the level of cholesterol in the blood. The culprit is elsewhere. It are saturated fats and trans fats that are responsible for high levels of cholesterol in the blood. Shrimps as is the case with most items of seafood have a very low amount of saturated fat.
What you should remember is to eat a balanced diet that consists of seafood, poultry, whole grains, lots of green vegetables and fruit.
