Oops! Turns out eggs aren’t so bad for you after all. That’s right! You can even eat the yolks now.
This isn’t the first time U.S. government food advice has been badly wrong, and you can bet the farm it won’t be the last.
They’ve finally realized what most of us have known for years: eggs have virtually no impact on blood cholesterol levels.
Even if you’re worried about cholesterol, cutting out eggs won’t make a difference.
Repeated studies have shown that two eggs a day have no impact on blood cholesterol levels, even in people who already have elevated cholesterol.
So whether you like yours fried, boiled, sunny side up, over easy, undercooked or not cooked at all, there’s no egg-scuses — eat your eggs, and eat them often.
Just be sure you get yours fresh from the farm, or at least organic — because eggs HAVE changed in recent years, just not in the ways that governments will ever admit.
Factory farms give their chickens worthless feed instead of the grass, bugs, and worms they need to produce good-quality, nutrient-dense eggs.
Hens fed naturally, on the other hand, produce eggs with more omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene and vitamins A, D and E.
You might have to shell out more for fresh and organic eggs — but they’re worth the extra scratch.
