Egg can also prevent arteriosclerosis. The U.S nutritionists and medical workers use eggs to prevent arteriosclerosis, and won an unexpected effect. They extract lecithin from eggs, walnuts and liver and let patients who are suffering from cardiovascular eat 4 to 6 tablespoons a day. And after three months, the content of serum cholesterol in the patients' body fell from the thousand percent mg to one hundred and eighty percent. This research finding has attracted the attention of the entire medical circle.
