Peanut Butter is good for cholesterol when eaten in moderation.

However consuming too much peanut butter could be bad for your cholesterol and could raise your cholesterol levels.

Eating too much peanut butter also promotes artery-clogging atherosclerosis, the process that underlies most cardiovascular disease.

In contrast, unsaturated fats, which make up the majority of the fat content in peanut butter, help reduce LDL cholesterol and lower the risk of heart disease.

Cheese is bad for cholesterol if you eat too much of it.

In moderation though Cheese is okay to eat when you have high cholesterol levels.

Cheese is actually a great source of protein and calcium but is often high in saturated fat and salt.

This means eating too much could lead to high cholesterol and high blood pressure, increasing your risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Cottage cheese and fat-free cheeses contain the least cholesterol per serving.

And even whole milk ricotta cheese contains half the amount of cholesterol as cheddar cheese.

All together, you can't go wrong with choosing low-fat or fat-free cheeses instead of their whole-milk counterparts.

Potatoes do not contain cholesterol so they are not bad for cholesterol.

Even when you have high cholesterol it's safe to eat potatoes including white potatoes.

White Potatoes and other potatoes are not bad for cholesterol as the potatoes do not contain cholesterol and the can be very heart healthy.

One medium-sized white potato has about 110 calories, 26 grams of carbohydrate, 3 grams of both fiber and 3 grams of protein, and is also free of fat and cholesterol.

Potatoes are good for your heart health and cardiovascular health as long as they are not fried potatoes.

Raw potatoes, baked potatoes, boiled potatoes etc are good for your heart and good for your health.

Potatoes are high in potassium, which helps lower blood pressure.

They are also loaded with fiber, which has been shown to help lower the risk of heart disease.

Potatoes are also good for ulcers as well.

Raw Potatoes can heal ulcers and prevent ulcers.

Potatoes contain unique antibacterial molecules that can treat stomach ulcers as it was discovered that a key molecule in potato can both cure and prevent the bacteria that lives in the stomach and causes stomach ulcers and heartburn.

Raw Potatoes are edible and you can safely eat raw potatoes.

In fact raw potatoes are actually healthier for you than cooked potatoes.

It's safe and OK to eat raw potatoes just like it's safe and OK to eat other raw vegetables.

Raw potatoes are much healthier for you than cooked potatoes are because when potatoes are raw they contain more vitamins, nutrients and minerals than cooked potatoes.

All vegetables including potatoes are best eaten raw when you want to get the health benefits.

Although raw potatoes can be harder to chew and digest than cooked potatoes for some people so they may need to be cooked.

But you certainly can cut up a raw potato or bite into a raw potato and eat the raw potato without cooking it.

It's best to wash the potato off before eating it though because it could contain pesticides if they were store bought.

But other than that raw potatoes are perfectly fine to eat.
