You know how we’ve been hearing about how bad eggs are for you? The nasty cholesterol in them can raise your cholesterol. They can cause heart attacks. Really, you shouldn’t eat many of them. And if you do, make sure you don’t eat the yolk.
Yeah, well, Jonny Bowden is saying that’s all bunk.
The idea that eating eggs is bad for your heart is a myth. No study has linked egg eating to greater risk of heart disease. In fact, quite the opposite. According to an article from Harvard Health (a publication of Harvard Medical School), “The only large study to look at the impact of egg consumption on heart disease … found no connection between the two.”
Note: That site may be a trigger as it is focused on diet and exercise to lose weight.
However, this is a good case of the “stuff we’ve always known” myth. You know, like we’ve always known that fat people get more heart attacks/strokes/diabetes/whatever.
Conall showed me this today, and after reading the article, I started to say, “Wonder how long…”
He finished with, “It’ll be til they come up with the all egg diet?”
