I can't say for sure, and I may have the terminology mixed up, but there are more than one type of cholesterol, a good and a bad type. Your hormones (at least if I remember correctly) are made in the cholesterol (if I have the right term, I'll have to look it up again), and so the cholesterol found in some foods is not a bad type, and is actually needed by the body.
But someone with a greater knowledge than I may know more about this, I'll check it out when I get more time.
