Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article about cholesterol and eggs. The article states that in the late 1970s doctors saw a correlation between blood levels of cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. Believing that a high cholesterol diet could lead to heart attack and stroke. So for the next forty years doctors demonized eggs and cholesterol in the diet. In 2013 a study came out that indicated this notion is wrong. In fact the human body needs cholesterol to make hormones.Callers
