Greatest Headline Ever- It’s Official “Naps & Lobster Are Good For Health” vis @CBSBoston

Uhmmmm, Heloooo I’ve been saying this for years!-
Naps & Lobster Are Good For Health

CBS Local-Feb 11, 2015

BOSTON (CBS) – For years doctors have been advising Americans to avoid eating certain foods high in cholesterol like eggs, lobster and shrimp, but new research suggests that this is not sage advice.

It turns out your blood cholesterol is dictated much more by genetics than by how much cholesterol you eat in your diet.

That said, saturated fats, like butter, cream, cheese, and animal fats play a larger role in the level of bad cholesterol in your system and those foods should still be limited to maintain ideal cholesterol levels.

Dr. Mallika Marshall says people with diabetes and certain other medical conditions should limit cholesterol-rich foods, but for everyone else, eating eggs and shellfish is probably fine.


Absolutely the greatest headline I’ve ever read.  Great work CBS Boston

Thanks for the tip Bippy
