When it comes to foods with confusing health messages, eggs may take the cake: Despite being a long-time breakfast and baking staple, health experts warned for years against eating themâ€”especially the yolksâ€”on a super-regular basis, for fears that doing so, could raise cholesterol and contribute to heart disease.
Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. In fact, a whole egg contains all the nutrients needed to turn a single cell into an entire chicken.They contain important brain nutrients and powerful antioxidants that protect your eyes.
Common recommendations include a maximum of 2â€“6 yolks per week. However, scientific support for this limitation is lacking. It's also important to keep in mind that not all eggs are the same. Most eggs at the supermarket come from factory-raised chickens fed grain-based feeds.
Overall, eating eggs is perfectly safe, even if you're eating up to 3 whole eggs per day according to the multiple studies conducted.
