Lowering diets because it contains so little saturated fat and has some of the polyunsaturated fat that helps lower blood cholesterol.
Eskimos rarely suffered heart attacks found that the omega-3 fats in their fish-rich diet make their blood less prone to clotting.

Roll with the oats
Another dietary choice: oat bran and beans – reduced cholesterol 20 percent.
Oat bran muffins (about two large ones per day) lower blood cholesterol, 1/2 cup of dry beans, cooked and incorporated into a soup or side dish.
It’s their soluble fiber and cholesterol bind together and is eliminated from the body.
Fairly large amount-more than a single serving a day- to reap the benefits you’re looking for. If your cholesterol remains too high after a trial of oat bran or beans, you’ll have to cut down on saturated fat and cholesterol, too.
