We are very proud to announce the launch of our page regarding the impact of egg consumption on human health: "Eggs and Our Health".
Since late 2017 through early 2018, the public has been bombarded with media reports citing studies claiming that dietary cholesterol does not actually increase cholesterol levels in our blood. And consequently, this has resulted in many nutritionists, bloggers and doctors now promoting egg consumption and informing the public to go ahead and eat as many eggs as you like. Some are even suggesting that egg consumption reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke and those with type-2 diabetes and pre-diabetes are no longer at risk. There have been concerted efforts by the egg industry to have major health organizations drop the limitations of cholesterol intake in place for the last four decades.
This misinformation is insidious and on par with the efforts by the tobacco industry in the 1950's, 60's and 70's seeking to disassociate their products from lung disease, and the sugar industry in the 1960's using deliberate misinformation to cast doubt on evidence that sugar was bad for heart health.
We address all of these issues and more. It is well worth the read and we encourage everyone to bookmark our "Eggs and Our Health" page for quick, future reference.
We'd like to give special thanks to Dr. J. David Spence, head of neurology and clinical pharmacology at the Western University, London, Ontario, Canada. We are also grateful to Dr. Michael Greger for his immensely informational videos from his website Nutritionfacts.org. And a special shout out to our editor, Sheryl Greenspan for her selfless support of our website.
