Schizophrenic science? That is the word that may come to mind if you heard about the recent headlines once again demonizing the egg.
“No yolk: eating the whole egg as dangerous as smoking?” writes the LA Times
“Eggs found to be as dangerous for the heart as smoking, new study suggests” says the Global Post
This egg filled frenzy is based on recent article published in the journal Atheroscelerosis
There has been a great deal of buzz about this study in the nutrition community. After I read this journal article and was compiling my thoughts on the findings, I came across this summary from “The Everyday Dietitian” which I think will help you to make informed decisions about keeping eggs as part of your daily diet. Personally, I plan to keep eggs as a regular part of my diet, taking care to make other choices that will limit my dietary cholesterol & saturated fat. Read the link and rest assured that it is not all gloom and doom for “the incredible, edible egg.”
