Eating eggs will raise your cholesterol level

This is true but it depends on several factors.

Eggs contain considerable amounts of cholesterol in the yolk - about 250 to 300 milligrams.

However, the effect of cholesterol in food on the level of cholesterol in blood depends on:

Polyunsaturated fat from plant sources (or in cooking oil and margarine and nuts like walnuts) will all reduce the blood cholesterol response to cholesterol from food.

A boiled egg will not have the same effect on the blood cholesterol as an egg eaten with other foods containing saturated fats such as, for example, a fatty sausage!
