Many Americans were raised on the theory that eggs were loaded with artery-clogging cholesterol, and that eating them was a surefire way to promote coronary heart disease. That couldn’t be further from the truth, though. When Wake Forest University researchers reviewed some of the top scientific studies, they found no link between eating eggs and heart disease.
In fact, many leading health experts call them the perfect food. The white part and the yolk work together to bring you an ample serving of important vitamins, healthy fats, trace minerals, and other nutrients—all in one convenient, low-calorie package. After all, a single whole, large egg contains just 72 calories. They’re easy to cook, too—nature’s healthy version of convenience food. They contain some healthy unsaturated fats and 6 grams of protein. They are an excellent source of zeaxantin, lutein and choline that preserve eye health, protect from vision lost and prevent dark circles.
Eating more eggs is a great way to give you a healthy boost. If you are not keen on eating them regularly, here are reasons why you should.
The eggshell doesn’t indicate the reduced nutritional values of the egg; it only “reveals” the type of hen. Therefore, you don’t need to pay much attention whether the eggshell is brighter or darker. The nutritional value of this food is still inside, no matter the outside.
2. Almonella in eggs
Only one of the 20,000 factory farmed eggs is “poisoned” with salmonella. The possibility of becoming infected with the bacteria by eating eggs is so small that the average consumer of eggs will find one infected in every 84 years, writes Lolvot.
The yolk color depends on the nutrition that the hen had and doesn’t “reveal” the lack of nutritional value, as you may think, if the yolk has lighter color.
4. A blood stain on the yolk
There is a big chance that this has happen to you, but if you are wondering what the cause is, here’s the answer. This happens when a capillaries breaks in the yolk and that doesn’t mean that you should doubt in the egg’s quality.
5. Aracuana chicken
This type of hen is known as “Easter chicken” because she naturally lays blue, pink, green and brown eggs.
6. Eggs and cholesterol
One egg “covers” two-thirds of the maximum recommended daily intake of cholesterol. However, if you wonder about the health risks if you eat a lot of eggs, don’t worry. The daily consumption of eggs doesn’t increase the risk of heart disease, the researches have found.
