If you’re a regular Healthier Talk reader, you already know what I think about eggs. They’re a nearly perfect food.
Despite all the warnings and threats, there’s no proof that eggs are harmful to your health. In fact, there’s plenty of evidence that just the OPPOSITE is true.
And I’m about to add more proof to that stack. As new research confirms what I’ve been saying all along.
Eggs AREN’T unhealthy. And the fat and cholesterol in them won’t harm your health.
It turns out you can eat them … every day of the week if you like… without worrying about the fat and cholesterol in them harming your health.
Research has once again confirmed eggs WON’T increase your risk of heart disease and other problems.
So go ahead and break out the griddle, crack open a couple of those golden treasures, and settle in while I serve up the latest news on your favorite breakfast food.
Cracking the case on heart disease risk
Some folks in the mainstream did finally stop warning about the supposed risks of eggs a couple of years ago.
I suspect the science had become SO undeniably clear that they feared they’d look silly if they continued to spread the harmful LIE.
But many didn’t. And, besides, we’ve heard the warnings for so many years… and so frequently… that a lot of folks still haven’t put eggs back on the daily menu.
Sure, we eat them. Most egg fans never REALLY quit them entirely.
But they just never quite returned to the place of honor at the breakfast table. For many, they’ve been more of a weekend treat rather than an essential part of the morning meal.
But the new study confirms you can make eggs a daily habit again, the way it should be.
Because it proves – yet again – that eating an egg a day WON’T…
- increase the risk of heart disease
- raise blood levels of cholesterol
That second one has been used to knock eggs for ages. Since they’re so high in cholesterol, they HAVE TO raise cholesterol in the blood, right?
Well, as I’ve explained before, it doesn’t work that way. And the new research confirms it.
But old habits die hard, and there’s one part of the study where the researchers are still playing chicken. They encouraged folks to always stick to just one egg or less a day.
And sure, if all you want is one egg, go right ahead. But if you’re craving a heartier serving, don’t be shy. Because other studies have gone much further.
Back in 2018, for example, researchers found that a dozen eggs a week didn’t increase heart risk. And that was true even when folks had diabetes or pre-diabetes.
The incredible benefits of eggs
But not raising heart and health risks is just the beginning for eggs. They can deliver some big health BENEFITS too.
One study found eggs can help you beat the battle of the bulge. Folks who eat them daily are far less hungry throughout the morning and even into the afternoon.
In fact, after an egg breakfast, people are less likely to have a mid-morning snack and eat less overall at lunch, even when offered a chance to have whatever they want.
Eggs are also a top source of the hard-to-find brain-boosting nutrient choline. And they provide a big shot of vision protecting lutein and zeaxanthin as well.
For maximum nutrition… and maximum benefits… look for free-range organic eggs.
