Quite recently, eggs were considered to be a kind of “bad” food as they were believed to contain too much cholesterol. As a result, people believed that consuming more than a couple of eggs per week could be dangerous and lead to coronary heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. However, a study conducted recently seems to have disproved the idea completely!
Eggs and Heart Disease
Chinese scientists have undertaken a research that shows the connection between consuming eggs daily and high risks of heart disease. More than 415,000 healthy people who suffer from neither diabetes nor heart disease have taken part in the research that has lasted for almost nine years. 13% of them have had at least one meal per day that included an egg and 9% of them have rarely consumed eggs or haven’t done it at all.
The results were stunning – the participants who had eaten eggs daily had up to 26% lower risks of hemorrhagic stroke and 18% lower risk of dying from heart disease. Isn’t it a good reason to try these Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs?
Eggs and High Cholesterol Level
Although another study undertaken by Australian scientists has lasted for three months only, its results are impressive and able to make us change our mind, too. People of one group were asked to eat more than 12 eggs every week while people of the other group consumed less than two eggs weekly. In three weeks, no difference in the level of cholesterol of both groups has been detected. We believe now you can start almost every day with this delicious Easy Slow Cooker Egg Casserole!
Eggs and Weight Gain
The same groups of people were asked to try to lose weight and keep to a diet eating as many eggs as they did before. In a year, the participants of both groups were examined by doctors again who said the risk of developing heart-clogging diseases haven’t increased in any of the groups. The pressure, blood sugar, and level of cholesterol in both groups were almost the same as well. Now you know that you can try these Baked Eggs with Arugula and Salmon without any risks!
