Our older members might remember adverts which told us to go to work on an egg.
Sadly this all came to a stop when the ads were vetoed in 2007 because we were told that eggs failed to provide a balanced diet and that eggs raised cholesterol and was a major cause of heart attack and stroke.
A new study published in the prestigious British Medical Journal however, concludes that eggs will do nothing to raise those risks after all. The study was by Harvard
University researchers who studied 210,000 Americans and found that there was no association between egg consumption and cardiovascular disease.
Dietitian Dr. Carrie Ruxton who acts as an adviser to the British Egg Information Service says: “ Eggs are rich in protein and are nutrient dense providing one of the few dietary sources of vitamin D. It’s great that we can now put people’s mind to rest”.
