Dr Oz played Jeopardy: Cholesterol Edition to answer some of our Cholesterol FAQ’s! The categories for Doctor Oz’s Jeopardy game included Breakfast Boosters, In A Nutshell, Go Fish and Medicine Cabinet Cures. Here are the Cholesterol Jeopardy questions and answers:
Dr Oz: Margarine Lowers Cholesterol
Dr Oz’s first answer was: Plant Sterols often added to this spread may lower your cholesterol levels. The correct response was “what is margarine?” I suppose that this is why we are told to use margarine instead of butter.

Dr Oz: Statin Drugs or Lipitor
Dr Oz’s third answer was: “the most popular prescription medication used for high cholesterol.” The correct response was Statin Drugs or Lipitor, which are the most prescribed drugs to treat high cholesterol levels.
Dr Oz: Polyunsaturated Fat in Fish
Doctor Oz’s fourth answer (a Daily Double) was from the Sea Breeze Fish Market in NYC: “the Polyunsaturated Fat found in fish can help to lower your cholesterol.” The correct response was: “What is Omega-3 Fatty Acids?” Dr Oz said that you want to get two servings of Omega-3 Fatty Acids every week and that will help to reduce your cholesterol, forgetfulness and fatigue.

Dr Oz’s Final Jeopardy was under the topic of Cholesterol Double Trouble. The answer was “the most dangerous fat often found in cookies, cakes and french fries.” The correct response was “what are Transfats?” Doctor Oz said that Transfats are the worst kinds of fat and you should watch out for ingredients like Partially Hydrogenated Oil.
