Is cholesterol a bad thing?
Some dietary cholesterol is fine, provided it comes from quality sources. Think of it the same way you might think of simple carb consumption. Bananas, for example, are high in sugar, but their nutritional value makes up for that. Similarly, egg yolks are high in cholesterol, but they're also very nutritious, so the good outweighs the bad—as long as you eat them in moderation!
