We’ve all heard the importance of eating whole grains.

And there is new information that it can help reduce the risk of heart failure. But if you eat high-fat dairy, it does just the opposite.

A new study shows each serving of whole grains may lessen heart failure risk by seven percent. But each serving of high-fat dairy or egg appears to increase the risk by 8 to 23 percent.

The author of the study says the occasional egg won’t hurt.

But a high-fat diet can spell trouble down the road.
