Dark meat contains a nutrient- taurine which protects women from heart diseases

|
According to a new research a nutrient called taurine, found in dark meat of turkey and chicken, may protect women with high cholesterol against coronary heart disease.

Dark meat has more fat and calories than white meat. Even chicken and turkey thighs, legs, and wings could also have a potentially helpful nutrient-taurine.

The study, published in the European Journal of Nutrition, revealed that taurine, naturally found in the dark meat of poultry and also in some fish and shellfish, may actually protect women with high cholesterol against coronary heart disease.

Researchers linked higher taurine intake to a 60 percent lower risk of developing or dying from heart disease among the women with high total cholesterol levels. Among women with low cholesterol levels, however, taurine failed to have the same beneficial effect.
