\"The chief means of avoiding high cholesterol levels in the blood is to lower one\'s dietary intake of cholesterol. Because cholesterol is present in animal fats (i.e., saturated or polysaturated fats) but not in fats obtained from plant sources (i.e., unsaturated or polyunsaturated fats), this can be done by: (1) reducing one\'s total intake of fats, (2) partly or wholly replacing one\'s consumption of saturated fats with that of unsaturated fats, and (3) reducing one\'s consumption of foods containing cholesterol.\"
