Eggs - Good Or Bad?

For something so small and perfect in size and shape, eggs have attracted more than their fair share of debate.

Good or Bad?

Those for the negative warn that eggs are one of the highest sources of cholesterol and eating them will clog arteries and increase your risk of heart disease.

Those for the affirmative counteract that eggs are a buried treasure of nutrition and that eating cholesterol, particularly cholesterol from a natural whole food source, makes no difference to actual cholesterol levels in your body.

So who is right?

While researchers from the University of Connecticut and Hospital Chavez in Mexico do not claim to know all the answers, they were able to prove that eating one egg per day for breakfast for five weeks made no difference to blood sugar, cholesterol, lipid or insulin levels in 33 people with type 2 diabetes.

In a surprising twist, the authors also found that eggs were potentially beneficial in this population, significantly reducing markers of inflammation (low levels of inflammation are common in people with chronic diseases including type 2 diabetes) to a much greater extent than an oatmeal-based breakfast.

While we would be hesitant to recommend unlimited consumption of eggs, it does appear that they aren’t as villainous as they have been made out to be.

Perhaps it’s time some more studies were conducted on the virtue of eggs, to see just how “eggcellent” they really are!
