Cholesterol(1 post)

Talking about diets: A study was done on Africans who had a diet really high in Cholesterol, yet were normal in their cholesterol levels. Everything was measured, clearing time of food was 23-32 hours, stool weighed approx. 1 lb.
The scientists were confused. This study was repeated in England, they found clearing times of 3-7 days, stool weighed less than 8 oz. This study was then done in the U.S., clearing times went as high as 3 weeks, stool was 4oz.
The culprit turned out to be refined food, low fiber. We were basically constipated. One reason why we are a nation of fatties! What do you think of refined foods and our nations physiques.
