Minimizing Risk of Atherosclerosis- substitute unsaturated fat for saturated fat: decrease circulating LDL and IDL particles in blood- minimize consumption of dietary cholesterol – not 1:1 with production of cholesterol-cholesterol in food highly correlated w/ saturated fat b/c mammals require the lipoproteins to carry their saturated fat-problem (say egg producers) – industries went off the wall when these recommendations were made!!-60% cholesterol is made by body, decreasing cholesterol intake – increase in cholesterol synthesis BUT it is down regulation : because production is slower than the decrease; proportion is NOT 1:1-liver cholesterol production:-bile, triglyceride – to small pieces-supply substrates for cholesterol production from food we eat (everything feeding in)-reducing total intake: reduces cholesterol production b/c you require fewer particles that are used for production-minimize consumption of all fat – a lot of the cholesterol that we need are carriers
