Who Says Eggs Aren’t Healthy Or Safe?

One response to “Who Says Eggs Aren’t Healthy Or Safe?

    Thanks for sharing this with us. I thought that the last few minutes of the video were the most interesting. However, I think the dispute about whether eggs are healthy or not is not being put in the wrong context. It really depends on your age and your nutritional needs. Eggs are “nutrient-dense” and provide a variety of benefits. If they replace the red meats in your diet, I see no reason to worry too much about cholesterol. Also, it is important to remember that humans need fats for their cells to function properly. If you are cutting out the red meats and the sweets, you might as well get these fats from eggs.

    Thanks for stopping in, PRA, and for taking the time to leave a comment. I recommend you watch the video again. I’ll even recommend a second video on the same subject that might influence your pro-egg opinion.

    Often times age is just a number, but I can assure you that at any age, eggs do more harm than good. I’d be curious to know what benefits one could possible get from eggs that would outweigh their drawbacks. If such a benefit exists, I’m sure it can be obtained from a healthier source.

    If you replaced all animal products (meat, seafood, dairy…) in your diet with just one egg a week, you’d still be getting too much cholesterol in your diet. The only cholesterol we need in our body, our body produces.

    “Nutrient dense” does not mean nutritious. Any fat needs our body may have can easily come from plant foods. On average, 10% of the calories in plant foods comes from fat. It’s where vegetable oil comes from; plants. If more fat is needed in our diets, more can easily come from plants: avocados, nuts, seeds and other sources are rich in healthy fats with no cholesterol.
