“Eggs Are Evil”</strong

This one hits close to home because delicious omelets are one of my favourite foods. Eggs get a bad rap because they contain a large amount of cholesterol, therefore people think eggs will increase their risk of heart disease.

Lucky for you and I, science is showing that cholesterol in the diet doesn’t really raise the cholesterol in the blood. Eggs actually have the opposite impact. Eggs raise the “good” cholesterol and are not shown to increase the risk of heart disease. 1 2

Here’s the truth: Eggs are one of the most nutrient dense foods in the grocery store. They are loaded with a variety of nutrients and even powerful antioxidants to protect your eyes. 3

      But, the cholesterol in eggs increased our GOOD cholesterol – it isnt a problem. Thats all hype and bad science from when the causal link between foods and chesterol wasnt fully understood.
