First medical experts told us not to eat too many eggs because they're high in cholesterol. But earlier this year, we were told that eating cholesterol is not what causes heart disease. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care", hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen interview Dr. Luc Djousse, director of research in the Division of Aging at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and an assistant professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. They discuss the nutrients found in eggs and how dietary cholesterol really works.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO’s health and wellness snow this Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m.. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
