- The study under review today claims that eating eggs does not affect cholesterol levels in the body, but the researchers tested cholesterol levels after a 10-hour fast.
- Participants who ate eggs in the study for just three months showed modest rises in fasted cholesterol levels, though not enough of a change to be considered statistically significant.
- The researchers had almost no control over the subjects' diets, making it practically impossible to draw conclusions from the data collected.
- This study uses other poorly designed scientific experiments as citations for its hypothesis, building further upon already flawed research.
- Unsurprisingly, this study was funded by the American Egg Board.
For a long time, I thought eggs were a nutritious food. They have lots of choline, a decent amount of protein, and a moderate amount of calories. Eggs are generally cheap, filling and tasty to boot, which made them a main stay in my breakfast meal for most of my life.
But are they really that nutritious? I've changed my mind about eggs being healthy, due to a large variety of research I've been reading over the past few weeks.
