Cholestrol Control.

This info is taken from The Star, on how you can control cholestrol level and at the same time can prevent heart disease.

Dietary recommendations for cholesterol control from alternative medicine practitioner G.C. Ong:

-Take plenty of fruits and vegetables, soluble grains and seafood, especially fatty fish.
-Reduce intake of saturated animal fats.

-Limit intake of transfatty acids in margarine and shortening.
-Do not go on extremely low-fat diet – it may be counterproductive.
-Take lots of antioxidants found in fruits, vegetables, nuts and olive oil.
-Consume vitamins C, E and beta carotene.
-Get enough calcium-rich foods, which helps reduce absorption of saturated fats.
-Drink green and black tea.
-A daily glass of wine may benefit HDL cholesterol.
-Eat more shitake mushroom, barley and kelp (seaweed).
Good info for everybody.
