    Cracking Some Egg Myths

    Research says eggs are not after all a major culprit in heart disease

    Eggs used to have a reputation as a major culprit in heart disease risk, but current research says these claims are not all they’re cracked up to be. The truth behind three common myths:

    Making eggs a regular part of your diet leads to heart disease.

    Eating one egg per day barely affects your risk of heart disease, while factors such as physical inactivity and obesity increase it as much as 40 percent, according to a recent study.

    The American Heart Association, however, does recommend keeping cholesterol to less than 300mg a day – so limit yourself to one whole egg daily(the yolk contains approximately 213 mg).

    Egg yolks aren't healthy

    The yellow centre is a rare source of vitamin D; just one has 20 IU as well as vitamin B12 and choline, among other nutrients.

    To keep cholesterol intake down, make your omelette with one whole egg and two whites and watch cholesterol at the rest of your meals.

    Brown shelled eggs are nutritionally superior to white shelled.

    They're equal. White shelled eggs are produced by hens with white feathers and white earlobes. Brown shelled eggs are produced by hens with red feathers and red earlobes.

    Generally, red hens are slightly larger and need more food, so their eggs typically cost more.
