Eggs were unfairly demonized because the yolks are high in cholesterol. However, studies show that cholesterol from eggs doesn’t raise blood cholesterol in the majority of people.
New studies that include hundreds of thousands of people show that eggs have no effect on heart disease in otherwise healthy individuals. The truth is, eggs are among the healthiest and most nutritious foods you can eat.
Almost all the nutrients are found in the yolk, and telling people to avoid the yolks (or eggs altogether) is one of the biggest mistakes in the history of nutrition.
