So we all know that science has turned the tables on fat and cholesterol but now what is a realistic, "healthy" intake of saturated fat and cholesterol? Considering a healthy person with an active lifestyle.

Cholesterol, if you meant eggs, some epidemiological studies have found a higher incidence of heart failure at higher eggs intake than 6 per week.

That is correct and not necessarily the reverse.

What those studies found was a link between increased egg consumption and heart failure. Cholesterol wasn't measured as far as I know.
