Just wondering, which has more LDL and which has more HDL? Also, is the LDL in grass-fed produce even bad for you?

The difference between the meat in a grass fed vs grain fed is in the fat. The grain fed animal has either very low or near none of Omega-3 fatty acids, however it has the same amount of Omega 6.

Cholesterol is cholesterol, it's the same in grass-fed or grain-fed meats.

You can think of HDL and LDL as taxi cabs taking passengers (cholesterol, triacylglycerol, phospholipids, and proteins) to and from the liver.

Plant products do not have cholesterol so I'm not sure what you mean by grass-fed produce.
