An ongoing dispute in the nutrition field is whether dietary cholesterol contributes significantly to elevated serum cholesterol and to atherosclerotic disease. Carefully controlled metabolic studies have shown that high-cholesterol intakes cause moderate increases in serum cholesterol levels. It is been difficult to verify this in population studies because of confounding factors. Nonetheless, meta-analysis of controlled studies documents a cholesterol-raising action of dietary cholesterol… 
Status of cholesterol in our diets: A review
TLDR
The goal was to look at intervention trials that looked at the impact of cholesterol on LDL levels in people and the importance of decreasing cholesterol levels with probiotics, dietary fiber, plant sterols, and nutraceuticals was discussed.
Dietary treatment to lower cholesterol and triglyceride and reduce cardiovascular risk.

TLDR
Based on the evidence, individuals should continue to minimize saturated fats and refined carbohydrates, eliminate trans-fat and increase fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, and fish or other omega-3 fatty acids because of lowering CVD and total mortality.
Understanding the Impact of Dietary Cholesterol on Chronic Metabolic Diseases through Studies in Rodent Models
The development of certain chronic metabolic diseases has been attributed to elevated levels of dietary cholesterol. However, decades of research in animal models and humans have demonstrated a high
Association between Dietary Cholesterol and Their Food Sources and Risk for Hypercholesterolemia: The 2012–2016 Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey
TLDR
Higher intake of processed meats with high SFA, but not dietary cholesterol was associated with higher risk for abnormalities in TC and LDL-C levels, suggesting that cholesterol intake can increase serum cholesterol.
Association of dietary cholesterol and dyslipidemia in Chinese health examinees
TLDR
The study suggested that dietary cholesterol consumption was not associated with dyslipidemia or serum lipids in Chinese health examinees, although a decreased risk was observed before the threshold points.
Genetic variability in the absorption of dietary sterols affects the risk of coronary artery disease
Abstract Aims To explore whether variability in dietary cholesterol and phytosterol absorption impacts the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) using as instruments sequence variants in the ABCG5/8
Genetic susceptibility, dietary cholesterol intake, and plasma cholesterol levels in a Chinese population
TLDR
The findings suggest significant interactions between genetic susceptibility and dietary cholesterol intake on plasma cholesterol profiles in a Chinese population are suggested.
Molecular Pathways Underlying Cholesterol Homeostasis
TLDR
An overview of several mechanisms involved in intestinal cholesterol absorption, the regulation of cholesterol synthesis and uptake, the influence of dietary cholesterol on plasma cholesterol concentration and the new recommendations for cholesterol intake in a context of a healthy dietary pattern are presented.
Dietary Cholesterol in the Elderly Chinese Population: An Analysis of CNHS 2010–2012
TLDR
There was a substantial urban-rural difference in cholesterol intake and dietary cholesterol intake was closely related to the intake of high-quality protein.

TLDR
The results demonstrate that the responses to dietary cholesterol and fat are highly individualized and that most individuals have effective feedback control mechanisms.
Dietary cholesterol from eggs increases the ratio of total cholesterol to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol in humans: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Dietary cholesterol raises the ratio of total to HDL cholesterol and, therefore, adversely affects the cholesterol profile, and the advice to limit cholesterol intake by reducing consumption of eggs and other cholesterol-rich foods may still be valid.

Possible reasons for the hyperbolic shape of the relationship between change in serum cholesterol and added dietary cholesterol, mechanisms for individual responsiveness to dietaryolesterol, and important implications regarding interpretation of prior studies and public health issues are discussed.

TLDR
The preponderance of the clinical and epidemiological data accumulated since the original dietary cholesterol restrictions were formulated indicate that: (1) dietary cholesterol has a small effect on the plasma cholesterol levels and (2) the lack of a significant relationship between cholesterol intake and heart disease incidence reported from numerous epidemiological surveys.
Quantitative effects of dietary fat on serum cholesterol in man.
TLDR
It is shown that minimal levels of serum cholesterol were achieved with oils with an iodine number of about 100, and that more highly unsaturated oils were not more effective, which implies that monounsaturated acids are half as effective as the diene, linoleic acid, the primary polyunsaturated acid in vegetable oils.
The Interaction of Dietary Cholesterol and Specific Fatty Acids in the Regulation of LDL Receptor Activity and Plasma LDL‐Cholesterol Concentrations a
TLDR
It is now clear that the magnitude of these specific responses to dietary cholesterol and specific fatty acids varies in different individuals with different genetic backgrounds from the same species, and the reasons for this variability are another area of research of considerable importance to human biology.
Characteristics of human hypo- and hyperresponders to dietary cholesterol.
TLDR
A low habitual cholesterol intake, a high serum HDL2 cholesterol level, or a low body weight do not make one less susceptible to dietary cholesterol-induced hypercholesterolemia.

TLDR
The data from the literature in which the serum-cholesterol response has been measured following a change in cholesterol intake have been re-evaluated and it is concluded that over the range of cholesterol intakes of practical interest the usual response is approximately linear.
