"How much cholesterol eggs give a person depend...

...on what the hen laying the eggs eats, researchers in Israel say.

"Dr. Niva Shapira of Tel Aviv University's School of Health Professions and colleagues designed feeds that were high in antioxidants and lower in omega-6 fatty acids, based on wheat, barley and milo.

"The specialized feed was given to young hens who had not yet accumulated omega-6 fatty acids in their tissues, and the composition of their eggs was then tested. Once the desired composition of low omega-6 and high antioxidant eggs was achieved they were given to study participants, who were instructed to eat two of these special eggs daily."
