One Myth About Fat
because eggs contain large amounts of cholesterol, they were believed to cause heart disease. However, studies show that the cholesterol in the diet does not raise the bad cholesterol in the blood. Eggs raise HDL the good cholesterol and are not associated with an increased risk of heart disease. Almost all nutrients are found in the yolk. The white is nothing but protein.
