  1. Cook with garlic and onions whenever possible. Both have been shown to cut cholesterol.
    Garlic is well known as a cholesterol lowering agent, containing a compound called allicin that changes the way in which the body uses cholesterol, says Stephen Warshafsky MD, assistant professor of medicine at New York Medical College in Valhalla. When Dr Warshafsky analysed data from five of the most reliable scientific studies on garlic and cholesterol, he found that eating one-half to one clove of garlic a day lowered blood cholesterol an average of 9 per cent. Taken fresh or as a supplement it is almost as effective as some cholesterol lowering drugs. Additional benefits are the prevention of clots and positive effects on plaque formation.
