Eggs False - that the eggs we eat is converted directly to blood cholesterol.
Many studies have shown that the intake of eggs makes no difference to our cholesterol levels.
Dietary cholesterol reduces the body’s production of cholesterol. More than 80% of the cholesterol in your blood is produced in your liver.
There is ‘strong evidence to show that the effects of cholesterol rich foods on blood cholesterol are small and clinically insignificant.’
The strong message that eggs are bad for us originated in the US in the 1970s. ‘Scores of studies have confirmed the value of eggs, which are quite possibly the world’s most perfect food; the yolk is the most nutritious part.’
A study in 2013 from researchers at the University of Connecticut showed people on a low-carb diet, eating whole eggs, even on a daily bases, improved insulin sensitivity and other cardiovascular risk parameters.
The whole egg contains all the essential amino acids we need to survive, vitamins and minerals, and antioxidants known ‘to protect the eyes’. They contain ample choline which is very important for aiding helping healthy brain function as well as pregnancy.
Anthony William has a different perspective on eggs. He tells us that eggs feed viruses, especially the Epstein Bar Virus, which many of us have dormant in our body. He recommends to avoid eggs for this reason. Epstein Bar Virus causes many different symptoms of many different illness in our body.
