Gun To Your Head: Which Meat Has The Most Cholesterol?

How many times has some frizzy haired killjoy insisted you not enjoy your food due to the concentrtated evil that is cholesterol? I would put my number of incidences in the thousands. And what is their typical suggestion? Ahem…


I crap you negative! Chicken! The most beloved meat of nutritional moral bluenosers everywhere has the highest levels of cholesterol of any critter in the animal kingdom. Ahem

Poultry and poultry products tend to have more cholesterol than many other animal products. A 3-1/2-oz. serving of chicken breast without skin has about 85 mg of cholesterol, which is more than a similar-size serving of ham, pork tenderloin, most kinds of fish and lean ground beef, according to the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center. Chicken liver has about 60 percent more cholesterol than beef liver. One whole egg has about 212 mg of cholesterol, nearly seven times the amount in a cup of whole milk.

And just a little boot in the face to these nutritional moral bluenosers here’s what they have to say in a recent study allegedly implicating red meat in heart disease

First, eating red meat has been linked to the incidence of heart disease. The saturated fat and cholesterol in beef, pork and lamb are believed to play a role in the risk of coronary heart disease.

The thing you’ll most come to notice if you study nutritional related matters is that it is a faith based system. And me? I already have a religion, thanks!

The Diet Doctor has much more on cholesterol related faith systems.
