Walking down Amsterdam Avenue on my way to work the other day, I saw this sign on the window of a new restaurant::

Eat no cholesterol

I got a really good belly laugh out of this.

If you ate no cholesterol at all you wouldn't live very well or very long. And if you were a child, you'd never full develop and perhaps suffer from learning disorders and a poorly functioning immune system.

Every cell in your body need cholesterol to reproduce and function optimally. What your body makes on it's own is not enough. That's why it's present in so many foods!

Needless to say, I won't be frequenting this establishment.
