Eggs and cholesterol

Previous advice to limit the number of

eggs you ate because they contained

certain dietary cholesterol, but it's now

understood that it is dietary fat, not dietary

cholesterol, that is the main dietary factor

in raising blood cholesterol. All major heart

and health advisory groups, including the

Department of Health and the British

Heart Foundation have lifted their previous

limit on egg consumption. According to

the British Heart Foundation, while too

many fried eggs and cheesy omelettes

may risk raising your cholesterol, it's the

added fat form the oil or the cheese that's

the problem, not the eggs. So poached,

boiled or scrambled eggs (without butter)

are all fine and should be eaten as part of

a balanced diet.
