Egg Consumption Linked to Risk of Type 2 DiabetesI’m often asked, “so what’s wrong with eggs?” The simple answer is that they make you fat and sick. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) says that eggs are not safe, healthy, or nutritious. I grew up on a dairy farm and one of my chores as a young child was to gather eggs. Pancakes and eggs were our daily morning breakfast. When I weighed 260 pounds, I routinely ate 3 and 4 egg omelets loaded with cheese and bacon. I was fat and sick. Thanks to hypnosis for weight loss, I have a large amount of no desire for eggs and other animal proteins. Plant based foods are safe, healthy and nutritious.

Eggs Are For Easter

A whole egg is 32% protein and the white of an egg is essentially 100% protein. Infants, growing children, and adults need, at most, 5% of their calories from protein. Therefore, eggs and egg products are 6 to 20 times more concentrated in protein than we need. Excess protein places burdens on our body, and especially on organs of metabolism, the liver and kidneys. Animal proteins, and particularly those from egg whites, are high in the troublesome, sulfur-containing amino acids, such as methionine.

Untainted research from high-quality studies shows that adding one egg to the daily diet of the average “healthy” person, already eating 200 mg of cholesterol from other sources, will increase their serum cholesterol by about 4%, which translates into a 8% increase in their risk of heart disease. Two eggs daily will mean a 6% increase in cholesterol (12 mg/dL) and 12% more heart disease over the next 5 to 10 years. For young adult men, indulgence in two of these “Easter bunny treats” daily means 30% more coronary heart disease over their lifetime.

Eggs are filled with too much protein, cholesterol, calories, fat, bacteria, and environmental chemical contamination to be consumed with any frequency, with any expectation of health. Egg protein is a common source of allergy in infants, children and adults, producing problems from hives to asthma. Eggs are high in fat which promotes obesity and type-2 diabetes. Fats and cholesterol in eggs promote the formation of cholesterol gallstones and gallbladder attacks. Egg-borne infections caused by the salmonella bacteria can give rise to cramps, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, chills, fever and/or headache food poisoning called salmonellosis. Eggs are a main contributor to human exposure to dioxin and other environmental chemicals that are known to cause birth defects, neurologic damage, and cancer. Many nutritional qualities of eggs are similar to the nutritional qualities of cow’s milk, cheese, chicken, beef, and fish – foods known to cause major health problems when consumed in typical amounts of people living in western societies.

Read Eggs Are For Easter

Personally, with all the medical and scientific research that I have read about eggs, I won’t even eat one for Easter. Even if you have your own hens and gather your own eggs, do you really want to feed yourself or your family something that is proven to be this unhealthy? Do you really want to eat something that it is illegal to market as healthy? I certainly don’t.
