Cholesterol-free foods could kill you!

Did you know that cholesterol free foods can actually lead to higher cholesterol levels because they have a component known as trans fat? 
This type of fat along with saturated fats is a recipe for disaster. Both the compounds require a large amount of processing by the body and can lead to higher levels of LDL or bad cholesterol which then go and clog arteries leading to heart disease, infertility, raise your chances of strokes and according to certain experts even Alzheimer’s.
What is LDL cholesterol? Why is it the ‘bad boy’ of the cholesterol world?
LDL also known as low density lipoprotein is actually simply a carrier of one type of cholesterol. Since the carrier when combined with cholesterol can cause severe conditions like heart disease it has been labelled as the ‘bad boy’ of cholesterol carriers.
