No fruit or vegetable has the ability to manufacture cholesterol. You need a liver to make cholesterol. Therefore, no plant food, including nuts and avocados contain cholesterol, as no plant has a liver.

“We’re basically a vegetarian species and should be consuming a wide variety of plant food and minimizing our intake of animal foods.”
