Foods to help you fight high cholesterol

To reduce cholesterol level, most people either eat foods with zero/low contents of cholesterol, or taking drugs (such as statin drug). But there are natural options out there as I blogged before (part1, part2, part3). Yesterday one of my friend pointed me to an article which summarized 10 top foods which can help fighting high cholesterol. Below are those 10 foods:
1. Shitake Mushrooms; 2. Walnuts; 3. Uncooked Soy; 4. Blueberries; 5. Salmon; 6. Garlic; 7. Avocado; 8. Black Beans; 9. Apples; 10. Dark Green, Leafy Vegetables
On this article, the comment made on the No.1 food (Shitake Mushrooms) is "... has been found to lower cholesterol levels in animal studies". I like to see some human studies before I get too excited about Shitake Mushrooms. All other foods are consistent with what I have known.
