Did you hear the news? Eggs are now the bad boys on the street.
Did you freak out a little with the recent study stating that eating more than 2 eggs a day may increase risk of developing heart disease?
The morning this study was published, I got bombarded with text messages and social media posts from friends and family asking me what in the world was going on.
Lot’s of frustrated and confused peeps out there.
I completely get it. It seems as if every week there’s a new study condemning or glorifying some type of food or eating style!
Vegan, Keto, Paleo rawtarian, vegetarian…when did we start labeling ourselves based on what we had for breakfast?!
Let’s #keepcalm and talk about what’s really going on with our beloved eggs.
If you didn’t read the entire article, here are some snippets that may make you want to roll your eyes and help you realize there’s no need to worry. Here ya go:
“Many experts say this study is no justification to drop eggs from your diet.”
“This is an observational study, so it doesn’t prove that cholesterol (in eggs) increases the risk of developing heart disease.”
Wait! there’s more…
The researchers behind this study tracked the health of about 30,000 adults and on average, participants were followed for about 17 years. – That’s a long time, right? But check this out:
“One shortcoming of the study is that participants were asked ONLY ONE TIME about their diets. So, this one snapshot may not have accurately captured their eating habits over time.” – You think??? (You may roll your eyes now.)
And this is why I tell you, don’t believe every article, social media post, or study out there, otherwise you’re going to drive yourself bananas!
