Eggs

According to a headline on some paper I saw today....
Eat eggs to prevent diabetes.......
GREAT !.... but..... aren`t they also HIGH in Cholesterol ?
http://www.healthaliciousness.com/articles/foods-highest-in-cholesterol.php
Ah yes... I thought so.... NUMBER ONE on the list  Shocked

 so... eat more eggs.... you won`t die of Diabetes... but you could be blocking your arteries and die of a heart attack.....  ( apart from the consstipation problems ! ! )....
Are these "food fads" experts for real ?  Or am I missing something?

My advice when it comes to food, eat what the hell you like, it's not anyone else's business to tell you what you can and cannot eat...

The latter.  Wink
Cholesterol in food gets digested, broken down into components and metabolised; cholesterol in your body comes from a complex set of factors and eating eggs has been shown to be basically irrelevant.

Re: Eggs

I always have believed, and always will, that the best policy RE food is a little bit of everything, not too much of anything.
These fad diets where you cut out entire food groups are at best unhealthy, and possibly dangerous in my opinion.

Eating too many eggs can be 'problematic' and could cause 'issues' for others nearby (especially in confined spaces).

Our bodies already manufacture all the cholesterol we need, so it is not necessary to consume more.
Excessive consumption of cholesterol has been shown to increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Definition and a link to the matching supporting research would be handy to guide us all.  Wink

Eat as many eggs as you like, just remember to increase the number of satins you take.

Nope, the link there merely led to an article including the quote, with no supporting definition or evidence.
