The U.S. government is poised to withdraw longstanding warnings about cholesterol

Significant amounts of cholesterol are found only in animal foods. Plants (starches, vegetables, and fruits) are “cholesterol-free" foods.
 
The problem is “the animal foods” - blaming individual components (i.e. cholesterol) is a risky business:
 
In common, animal foods (meat, poultry, eggs, dairy, and seafood) are:
  1. High in fat and/or high in protein
  2. Contain no dietary fiber
  3. Contain no energy giving carbohydrate (mammal milk is the exception)
  4. High in environmental contaminants (POP)
  5. Transmitters of microbes (zoonosis) - bacteria, viruses, parasites, prions
  6. Expensive (money) sources of calories 
 
Meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy are:
  1. Deficient in essential fats (omega 3 and omega 6)
  2. Deficient in vitamin C
  3. A (the) major source of global warming gasses and environmental damage (land and water)
  4. Loaded with allergens that cause autoimmune diseases through molecular mimicry
  5. Meat, poultry, and fish are deficient in calcium and dairy is deficient in iron
 
*Deficient means that they are unable to meet dietary needs of children and adults
