Cholesterol to a vegan
I am personally following a primal diet, but I got in a bit of a heated debate with a vegan the other day. Both of us agreed that every cell in the body can make its own cholesterol, because cholesterol is so absolutely vital to the human body. But then she said that if every cell has the ability to make its own cholesterol, then why should we eat additional foods with cholesterol in them? She said that the body's ability to produce its own cholesterol is yet another reason for choosing veganism. She said that she is totally healthy because her body already produces all the cholesterol that it needs on its own, so there is absolutely no need at all for her to ingest more cholesterol. Her logic seems to make sense, since the body can produce its own cholesterol. Thoughts?
