Who Said Eggs Have Too Much Cholesterol? (AUDIO)
Old Wives tales. You can list them as well as I can. And almost every one has been supported, then disproved, then brought back again ad nauseum.
Red meat is good for you. No, too much and you'll do the carpet cha-cha. Chocolate. Gives you zits. Very bad. Not dark chocolate though—that’s good for your heart.
And Eggs? Too much cholesterol, right? Only 2 eggs a week!! Well, here we go again, wives tale fans.
USDA says “Turns out eggs are actually lower in cholesterol and higher in vitamin D than previously thought. Specifically, 14% lower in cholesterol and 64% higher in vitamin D, the department announced in a PR Newswire press release. One large egg averages 185mg of cholesterol, which means that you can eat at least one a day without exceeding the recommended daily limit of 300mg”.
Isn’t this amazing? I think the funniest thing is when you buy Egg Beaters. Have you ever noticed that the new Egg Beaters CONTAIN YOLKS?? Huhhhhhhhh???? And if you're not worried about that, then you're worried about how your food was cooked--or if it was cooked enough? (insert parody here!!!)
This whole issue gives me such a bad headache, I’m gonna take some aspirin. But not too much. Bad for your stomach. But then again, one aspirin is good for your heart.
Maybe I should stick with Tylenol (if it hasn’t been recalled). HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
