Everyone's favourite fruit just took a big blow when it comes to the actual facts.

Avocados are grown on trees, they are green AF and taste so damn good that sometimes when we're munching down on one we can't actually believe it counts as one of our five a day.

Now bear with us as we're about to drop some serious science knowledge on your ass. The general view is that avocados stock us up with Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin B5, Vitamin K and fibre BUT there's evidence that it actually increases the risk of heart disease!

The study suggests that there are 'rare gene mutations' in certain individuals which can lead to high levels of cholesterol.

Cambridge University professor Dr Butterworth (sweet name) revealed, "This is significant because we had always believed that good cholesterol is associated with a lower risk of heart disease."

Adding "This is one of the first studies to show that some people that have high levels of 'good' cholesterol actually have a higher risk of heart disease so it challenges our conventional wisdom about whether 'good' cholesterol is protecting people from heart disease or not."

But let's face it...we're all going to keep eating them right?!
