Atherosclerosis is one of the common diseases of our time. Atherosclerosis causes coronary heart disease (heart attack and angina). Through research, it was found that the main causer of atherosclerosis is lipoprotein of low and high density.

The matter is that many of the substances that the body’s cells need are liposoluble.

Whether fats can be transported in the normal version by high or low density lipoproteins, which leads to atherosclerosis depends only on the ratio of the blood protein and fat.

Now it becomes clear that the reason for the growth of atherosclerotic disease in the developing world is that people eat too much fatty foods. Especially dangerous is the use of margarine (a mixture of vegetable and animal fats).

To prevent atherosclerosis, reduce the fat content in the food in 2-4 times, while maintaining the same level of protein intake. Protein of cooked eggs (boiled, fried, scrambled, etc.) is one of the best, because it is absorbed better than other proteins (by 97- 98%) and has an excellent amino acid composition (protein of raw eggs digest badly).
