ANIMAL saturated fat and trans fats are both bad for cholesterol. i'm glad elmhar confirmed my suspisions. coconut aint bad for cholestrorol at all. it contains MEDIUM CHAIN saturated fattty acids which don't affect LDL levels in the same way ANIMAL fats do. cashew nuts are higher in saturated fat than other nuts but there monounsaturated fat content is still 75% and the...
