Forbidden Food REVERSES Heart Disease
Eggs sure have gotten a bad rap over the past few decades.
They’re what I call the “collateral damage” of the cholesterol myth.
And they’re in good company. Full-fat dairy, meat, butter—some of the tastiest, healthiest foods on the planet became public health enemies when cholesterol was villainized.
But if you’ve been avoiding eggs (or egg yolks) because you’re afraid they could give you heart disease, I have great news for you today.
Because a recent study has proven once and for all that eggs do not cause heart disease.
In fact, they may be the secret to reversing it.
Yes, eggs contain cholesterol.
A LOT of cholesterol. About 212 mg per egg, to be precise.
And do you know what I say to that? SO WHAT?
Cholesterol isn’t bad for you. Even if it was (which it isn’t), recent studies have proven that there is no connection between dietary cholesterol and heart disease.
Recent studies have also shown that there is no link between eggs and heart disease.
Researchers from the University of Copenhagen analyzed studies from the past 10 years to get a clearer picture of the connection between eggs and heart disease. Here’s what they found:
- There is no connection between eating eggs and the risk of type 2 diabetes.
- Whether you have diabetes or not, there is no association between eating eggs and calcium in the arteries (atherosclerosis).
- In people at a higher risk of heart disease, there was an inverse association between eating eggs and high blood cholesterol—meaning the more eggs they ate, the lower the cholesterol.
- In people at a higher risk of heart disease, those who ate eggs had less visible atherosclerotic plaque, a major contributor to heart disease.
In other words, eggs either had no effect on markers of heart disease—or in some cases, they were helping to prevent it.
All I can say is, it’s about darn time.
Eggs are pretty much the perfect food, and everyone should be eating them.
One large egg has 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of fat. They’re packed with vitamin B12, vitamin B2, vitamin B5, vitamin A, selenium, and choline (an essential nutrient for brain health).
And do you know where all of these nutrients are located? The same place the cholesterol is…IN THE YOLK!
I’ll take mine sunny side up.
To a brighter day,

When it comes to taking statins, I advise taking the “better safe than sorry” approach.

When it comes to surviving cancer, the earlier you discover cancer, the better the prognosis. That’s why cancer screening tests are so important.

Dementia is spreading like an epidemic in America. Some people will tell you that it’s caused by your faulty genetics.
