Cholesterol is a silent killer that usually does not show symptoms, but it can surprise us with life-threatening complications, and it is a waxy substance found in the blood, and fatty deposits can form in the patient’s blood vessels, and eventually, these deposits grow and lead to the difficulty of adequate blood flow Through the arteries, these deposits sometimes rupture suddenly, forming a clot that causes a heart attack or stroke.
High cholesterol leads to serious consequences if not detected and treated, and many people inadvertently increase their risk by consuming the wrong type of foods that contribute to high cholesterol.
According to several studies, avoiding two types of food can help reduce cholesterol levels and risks significantly.

He added: “You should not eat more than 25 to 35 percent of your daily calories from dietary fats, and less than 7 percent of your daily calories should come from saturated fats, which are bad fats because they raise your LDL (bad cholesterol) level more than anything. Another in your diet. Trans fats are another harmful fat and can raise your LDL and lower HDL (good cholesterol).”

Foods that are high in trans fats include: oils and hydrogenated fats such as margarine, crackers and french fries.
A study published in the National Library of Health looked at saturated fatty acids and increased risk of coronary heart disease and cholesterol levels.
She explained: “Despite the well-established observation that replacing carbohydrates or unsaturated fats with saturated fats increases low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in human and animal models, the relationship between saturated fat intake and the risk of cardiovascular disease in humans remains controversial. “.
Eating saturated fats has been shown to increase low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and thus has been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
This evidence, along with findings from epidemiological studies and clinical trials, has led to long-term public health recommendations to reduce saturated fat intake as a means of preventing cardiovascular disease.
In humans, intake of saturated fat increases LDL cholesterol compared to all nutrients except for trans fats.
Trans fats increase low-density lipoproteins (LDL), triglycerides, and insulin levels, and decrease beneficial high-density lipoproteins (HDL).
