In an article called “Fat has less cholesterol than lean” by Raymond Reiser of Texas A&M points out that 100 grams of chicken drumstick has 91mg of cholesterol, while pork has only about 60 mg per 100 grams. “On the calorie basis,” he says, the cholesterol content of lean cuts “is about 4 to 6.6 times as high” as that of fat. – Ray Peat, PhD
