You must have heard someone saying, “If you have high cholesterol, you can’t have eggs“. Well, I heard it many times! Eggs, particularly the yolks, contain cholesterol which turn people away from these little wonders.
Before turning your shopping basket away from eggs, please have a quick read of this brochure, Eggs. (clicking on the link will take you to the pdf file)
In summary, the old statement is incorrect. The latest research has shown that consuming eggs does not increase your cholesterol, particularly if it’s a part of healthy balanced diet. What does it mean? It means that you can eat an egg a day without any worries! Regardless your cholesterol level, or family history of cardiovascular disease 😉 People are encouraged to eat eggs together with fruits, vegetables, wholegrain cereal and low-fat dairy products.
So, now, you can eat eggs without having to worry about your cholesterol! Tell your parents that they can eat eggs, too 🙂 just in case if they had been told to not eat eggs previously.
