Eggs: dispel mythology, restore the reputation 12 Feb 2009

According to research conducted by a British researcher, concerns over egg consumption and higher cholesterol are unfounded.

The link between the consumption of eggs and elevated cholesterol levels (hypercholesterolemia), which ultimately could lead to cardiovascular disease, is based on out-dated information, according to Professor Bruce Griffin from the University of Surrey, UK.

"The egg is a nutrient-dense food, a valuable source of high quality protein and essential micronutrients that is not high in SFA or in energy. In the current difficult financial climate, eggs can play a useful role as a relatively inexpensive source of nutrition for all and especially for people on low incomes," it was said in Nutrition Bulletin.

“It is high time that we dispelled the mythology surrounding eggs and heart disease and restored them to their rightful place on our menus where they can make a valuable contribution to healthy balanced diets.”
