Heart: Eggs are good for us after all

We've always been told that eggs are bad for our heart, and especially for raising cholesterol levels

We've always been told that eggs are bad for our heart, and especially for raising cholesterol levels. But now researchers have discovered that they can reduce high blood pressure, another risk to heart health.

Boiled and fried eggs act as a natural ACE inhibitor, which reduces blood pressure levels - and fried eggs are the more powerful of the two.

The new study follows recent papers that suggested healthy people can eat eggs without increasing their heart disease risk.
