In 2015, the government in the USA released the 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which contained two contradictory statements: “Cholesterol is not a nutrient of concernfor overconsumption," and “Individuals should eat as little dietary cholesterol as possiblewhile consuming a healthy eating pattern”. It is no surprise that expert opinion on the consumption of eggs and other foods that have been linked to high cholesterolis divided. Another point of contention is that cholesterol often co-exists in foods along with saturated fat and animal proteins. It is unclear if different sources of cholesterol, such as eggs, red meat, poultry, fish, etc. contribute differently to cholesterol levels.
