Both polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids help

lower cholesterol. Most plant-derived oils, including canola,

safflower, sunflower, olive, grape seed, and peanut oils, contain

both. Fatty fish (such as salmon, tuna, trout, herring, and

mackerel), seeds, nuts, avocados and soybeans are also great
