Does drinking prawns produce the cholesterol even to rise?
My cholesterol level is on the high side, i.e 6.5. A frind told me that eating prawns can put on a pedestal my cholesterol level. Is that true?
No is the simple answer, unless you deep fry them with batter and dunk them in processed sauces. These are fatal combinations. With high cholesterol you need to cut out all foods fried and processed. Source(s): Holistic Healing4U
Nutritional value of shrimps and prawns
Prawns and shrimps are an extremely worthy source of protein, yet are very low in curvy and calories, making them a very healthy choice of food.
Although shrimps and prawns have a large cholesterol content, they are low in saturated fat, which is the margarine that raises cholesterol levels in the body and is bleak for you. For this reason, there is no need to avoid drinking shrimps or prawns, as the cholesterol in the food is not the same as the cholesterol in one's blood.

Not unless your GP tells you to avoid them. You must avoid saturated fats, thats adjectives. Prawns will not harm you if you have a balanced diet - that scheme cut out the McDonalds!

No not true. Try a few simple change; full fat to semi-skimmed/skimmed milk, white bread to brown bread, cut back on red meat and when you do eat it brand name sure its extra lean and you grill it not fry. Also cut back on full fat products eg butter, cheese and yogurts opt for the low fat ones instead and put away more fruit. If you don't do exercise then start doing something. There are lots of leaflets that you can pick up in supermarkets, chemists that will advise you on what not to guzzle. Also check out the British Heart Foundation website.

Your liver controls your cholesterol even, not your diet.
High cholesterol is not a problem, forget about it.
Research ther cholesterol myth.
It's your overall intake that is more important. Blood cholesterol level are affected more by the amount and type of fat in the diet than the amount of dietary cholesterol.
A dignified intake of saturates, and fat of all types, can increase the amount of cholesterol produced within the liver and so the amount in the blood. Prawns are naturally low in wet fat, 100g contains only 0.2g.
Basically, just chomp through it as part of a balanced diet.
