One place on the web you could go to to find info about the cholesterol myth is "Second Opinions" by Barry Groves. He'll give you some basic info which you won't even have to pay for.

That's where I got started on my low-carb journey and I haven't looked back for a minute. And haven't you also been to "coconut.org" by Bruce Fife? Surely he has exploded the sat-fat-is-bad myth for you???

Cholesterol is NOT a bad thing!!! It is manufactured in the body by the liver and we NEED IT!!! The history of the cholesterol myth is pretty scary and too long to go into in a midnight post, but, believe me, it IS A MYTH!!!

Our brains are mostly made of fat; our hearts prefer fat as fuel; people with low cholesterol get depressed or develop Parkinson's disease, commit suicide, crimes or die early. Low cholesterol is not a good thing to have!!! These are just some snippets to let you know that low-fat is a recipe for bad health, not good health. We need fat to function normally!!!

Read some more about this before you panic!
