Eat That Chicken!

Eating chicken, other types of poultry and some kinds of fish—specifically the dark meat portions—may help to protect women with high cholesterol from developing heart disease, according to a study done by the Langone Medical Center of New York University. The magic ingredient is taurine, found in dark-meat poultry and some fish. The study of more than 14,000 women found that those with high serum levels of taurine were 60% less likely to develop or die from congestive heart disease. Who wants the drumstick?
