The TRUTH About Eggs and Heart Disease REVEALED
It’s villainized some of the tastiest, healthiest foods on the planet…
And it labeled many of the delicious (nutritious) foods you crave, like full-fat dairy, fatty meat, butter, and eggs, responsible for heart disease…
I’m talking about the cholesterol myth, of course.
And if you’ve cut these foods out of your diet because they’re “bad for your heart,” I’ve got GREAT news.
You can put them on the menu again!
Credible scientific studies have removed every single one from the naughty list.
In fact, today I’m going to reveal the TRUTH about the poster child for the cholesterol myth… the incredible, edible EGG.
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. But even if it was (which it isn’t), recent studies have proven that there’s NO connection between dietary cholesterol and heart disease.
Research has also confirmed there’s no connection between eggs and heart disease.
A team of scientists from the University of Copenhagen analyzed studies from the past 10 years to get a clearer picture of the connection between eggs and heart issues.
Here’s what they found about mainstream medicine’s enemy number one:
- There’s NO connection between eating eggs and the risk of type 2 diabetes.
- Whether you have diabetes or not, there’s NO link between eating eggs and calcium in the arteries (atherosclerosis).
- In people with 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 with 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 rather, in some cases, they were beneficial.
It’s about darn time!
Eggs are the perfect food, and everyone should eat them.
One large egg has 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of fat. They’re packed with vitamins B12, B2, B5, and A, as well as 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.
P.S. A recent study revelated a REAL threat to your heart health. This menace sends your risk skyrocketing no matter what your cholesterol reading is. I expose what it is… and the fix… RIGHT HERE.
