the latest research shows that cholesterol(even the bad) is vital to the body especially the brain and nerves. an outcast doctor i heard speak once, believes it will soon be called a vital substance like minerals.

so go ahead and eat your bacon (in moderation). just don't forget to exercise and drink lots of water!
