Higher Cholesterol from Coffee??
This month in Fitness Magazine’s Nutrition Q&A page, a reader asked the question : “What’s the healthiest way to brew coffee?” It never occurred to me that my french press could be harming my health. According to an assistant professor at The Harvard School of Public Health, coffee contains a cholesterol stimulating substance, cafestrol, which can raise LDL (bad cholesterol). Using a paper or mesh filter can eliminate cafestrol from getting into your cup. The French press has no filter and should be avoided on a daily basis at least. Save it for your trip to Paris!
