Attempts to estimate the effects of dietary cholesterol on serum cholesterol by meta-analysis have not previously included baseline together with added dietary cholesterol in a mathematical model. [] Key Result Mean reported changes in serum cholesterol from 27 studies in which controlled diets were supplied by a metabolic kitchen provided 76 data points, each weighted by the number of subjects in nonlinear regression.

Plasma lipid and lipoprotein responses to dietary fat and cholesterol: a meta-analysis.

Predictions indicated that compliance with current dietary recommendations will reduce plasma total and low-density-lipoprotein-cholesterol concentrations by approximately 5% compared with amounts associated with the average American diet.

Does Dietary Cholesterol Matter?

    Current Atherosclerosis Reports

By combining dietary cholesterol reduction with other cholesterol-lowering modalities, it should be possible to substantially reduce atherosclerosis throughout life short of using cholesterol- Lowering drugs that act systemically.

Dietary cholesterol and atherosclerosis.

Dietary lipid intake influences the level of cholesterol bound to haemoglobin in human erythrocytes

High consumption of dietary lipids, including saturated fat and cholesterol, has an important influence on the level of Hb-Ch in human erythrocytes.

The Impact of Egg Limitations on Coronary Heart Disease Risk: Do the Numbers Add Up?

Dietary effects on plasma cholesterol must be viewed from effects on the atherogenic LDL cholesterol as well as anti-atherogenic HDL cholesterol since the ratio of LDL:HDL cholesterol is a major determinant of heart disease risk.

Effects of dietary cholesterol on plasma lipoproteins and their subclasses in IDDM patients

Compared to normal subjects, in IDDM patients, dietary cholesterol intake increased the LDL particle mass significantly and had no positive effect on HDL and cholesterol intake did not affect the concentration or composition of HDL subclasses or total HDL mass.

Associations between dietary intakes and blood cholesterol concentrations at 31 months

There is no evidence to suggest that an increase in the intake of polyunsaturated fat by pre-school children would result in improved blood lipid profiles, and the data suggest that the dietary determinants of blood lipid concentrations differ between boys and girls.

Diet, lipoproteins, and coronary heart disease.

Hypercholesterolemic effect of dietary cholesterol in diets enriched in polyunsaturated and saturated fat. Dietary cholesterol, fat saturation, and plasma lipids.

Reducing the fat content of the diet resulted in decreased concentrations of LDL-C and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), and moderate amounts of cholesterol in the form of egg yolk were incorporated.

Effects of dietary cholesterol and fat saturation on plasma lipoproteins in an ethnically diverse population of healthy young men.

Variation in cholesterol rather than the proportions of saturated and polyunsaturated fat had the most influence on LDL-cholesterol levels, and among non-Caucasians it was the only significant factor.



Effect of dietary cholesterol in normolipidemic subjects is not modified by nature and amount of dietary fat.

Although the mean high-density-lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol concentration did not change, the proportion of HDL2 particles increased significantly, especially in subjects who did not show a rise in plasma cholesterol; this may represent a means of clearing dietary cholesterol.

Effects of dietary cholesterol and fatty acids on plasma lipoproteins.

The response of LDL to dietary manipulations is consonant with epidemiologic data relating diets high in cholesterol and saturated fat to atherogenesis, and the response of HDL2 is opposite to that of its putative role as a negative risk factor.

Congruence of individual responsiveness to dietary cholesterol and to saturated fat in humans.

It is concluded that modest differences in responsiveness of serum cholesterol to dietary saturated fat do exist in humans, and that, in people of normal cholesterol intake, responsiveness to dietary cholesterol and to saturated fat tend to go together.

Serum-cholesterol response to dietary cholesterol: a re-evaluation.

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.

Heterogeneity of cholesterol homeostasis in man. Response to changes in dietary fat quality and cholesterol quantity.

The results demonstrate that the responses to dietary cholesterol and fat are highly individualized and that most individuals have effective feedback control mechanisms.

Effect of dietary cholesterol on serum cholesterol in man.

It is concluded that furthen experiments are needed to determine what, if any, may be the effect on the serum cholesterol level of man from variations in cholesterol intake within the range of natural human diets.

Effects of exercise, dietary cholesterol, and dietary fat on blood lipids.

A dietary cholesterol increase can significantly elevate plasma LDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein B in certain normolipidemic, healthy men even when they are exercising regularly and consuming a moderately fat restricted, low saturated fat diet, and dietary cholesterol restriction may therefore be justifiable even when other life-style and dietary measures to minimize blood cholesterol are undertaken.

Dependence of the effects of dietary cholesterol and experimental conditions on serum lipids in man. I. Effects of dietary cholesterol in a linoleic acid-rich diet.

It is concluded that the presence of a high content of linoleic acid in the diet reduces the effect of dietary cholesterol on serum cholesterol if the cholesterol is provided as egg yolk.
