High cholesterol is responsible for a build-up of plaque on arterial walls which causes blockages. This in turn elevates the risk for heart disease. However, a blockage is more closely related to how high your LDL, or low-density lipoprotein, levels are. On the other hand, high-density lipoprotein, or HDL, is actually good cholesterol which helps keep the arteries plaque-free. By adding certain foods to your diet, you can help improve these levels. The most important thing is to avoid foods that are high in saturated fat and cholesterol.For more please read at the following link
I am afraid, your source of information is not priority for scientific evidence. There are a number of good reviews in scientific journals which would be right.
A skewed lipid profile in an individual is reflective and indicative of a system that is corrupted due to several factors. All vegetarian foods are cholesterol free and yet individuals on exclusive vegetarian diets are still found to have high cholesterol. Besides meal composition consumption of meal schedule has a great bearing. Long hours of fasting followed by consumption of processed or ready-to-eat foods as quick bite equates to feasting, results in Starvation, Sleep deprivation, Stress and Sedentary life style all not just add up but rather multiply with syndrome manifestations. All research protocols have inherent limitations with respect to universal applicability. Hence Seeking and singling out individual factors will not resolve any of the issues and is an attempt to reduce it over Simplification exercise. Armed with good reviews based scientific evidence the nutrition fraternity needs to evolve application on one-to-one basis rather than generalize
