  • Health Benefits of Eggs - What Science Says

    In the category "most useful food" a chicken egg is one of the most nutritious, absolutely safe, and healthy products in the world.

    For many years, doctors have recommended limiting the consumption of chicken eggs. Some people are so afraid of cholesterol that they exclude eggs from their diet altogether, or they eat only protein and just throw away egg yolk.

    Meanwhile, scientists have conducted a lot of research that has proven that egg yolk is absolutely safe.

    An egg yolk is now at the forefront of the "Healthy food" rating. Let's look at these studies and dispel the existing myth forever.

    1. There is a myth that chicken eggs are dangerous for the heart due to their high cholesterol content.

    Scientific research has debunked this myth. A chicken egg does not in any way affect the level of cholesterol in human blood.

    The very fact of cholesterol safety in food has already been proven and recognized all over the world.

    Since 2015, this is already a generally recognized fact. Besides, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which has been issued every 5 years from 1980 to the present, issued new guidelines stating that dietary cholesterol is not as dangerous as previously thought.

    The 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines removed the recommendations of restricting dietary cholesterol to 300 mg/day.

    2. A chicken egg does not in any way affect the development of coronary heart disease.

    Research has shown that those who do not eat eggs and those who consume 1 egg per day have the same heart and blood vessel health.

    and some studies even show a reduced risk of stroke:

    3. A chicken egg is a rich source of lutein, which protects eyes from age-related diseases: cataracts and macular degeneration.

    4. Studies have shown that people who eat 1-3 eggs (with the yolk !) a day have good vascular and heart health.

    They have a higher level of good HDL in their blood (HDL is a useful transport protein that prevents clogging of blood vessels and the development of atherosclerosis, heart attack, and stroke), which means that the risk of heart disease decreases - contrary to what was mistakenly assumed earlier.

    Such people do not have an increase in total blood cholesterol levels

    5.There have been suggestions that a chicken egg, due to its high choline content, is dangerous to the heart due to TMAO.

    But this myth has been debunked:

    6. In principle, all eggs are healthy. But grass-fed eggs are more useful.

    They contain OMEGA-3 fatty acids. And here are links to studies on the content of omega-3 fatty acids, depending on what chickens ate:

    7. Chicken eggs are included in the TOP of the world rating "Healthy food".

    Today, it has been proven that many B vitamins are actively involved in rejuvenating the body and prolonging human life.

    But the majority (almost all, not counting those that were created half a century ago) of the vitamin complexes presented in pharmacies are ineffective, as studies show.

    And vitamins from eggs are well absorbed and actively participate in the inhibition of the aging process of the body. Chicken eggs are rich in vitamins B12, B2, and B5.

    Let's sum up
    • No need to throw away the egg yolk, leaving the white. This is how you throw away the most useful things
    • A chicken egg is not only not dangerous, but also healthy
    • It is necessary to eat a chicken egg in a "hard-boiled" form to avoid possible salmonellosis infection.Some people (eg vegetarians) do not eat chicken eggs for reasons of "not killing animals." But the fact is that if a chicken is kept without a rooster, then its eggs are not fertilized, which means they do not contain a chick embryo. Shop eggs are just that. Such an egg is essentially a breeding ground for the nutrition of the embryo, which could be in this egg, but is absent. It is the same nutrient medium as milk for mammalian babies. Eating such "unfertilized" eggs is not killing animals, just as drinking milk is not killing animals. But by the way - this is everyone's choice.

    • World Media: Fear of Fat Was Originally a Mistake
      by Erica Blymyer

      For the past almost 40 years, all official dietary recommendations of developed countries have been based on the doctrine of maximum restriction of fat, especially saturated fat.

      The basis of the official food pyramid was recognized as carbohydrate-rich foods (rice, cereals, pasta, bread, potatoes, etc.), and fat was assigned a modest place at the top – no more than 30% of the total caloric intake, with a maximum of 10% – from saturated fat.
