Celebrate National Egg Month
Eggs are a great source of protein. One egg has the about the same amount of protein as 1 ounce of meat, fish, or poultry. Whole eggs also provide vitamins A and D, B vitamins and some iron. The recommendations to limit eggs if you have elevated cholesterol levels has changed. According to a review of new science there is no association between dietary cholesterol or egg consumption (a large contributor to dietary cholesterol intake) and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk in the general population was found. Previous recommendations to limit cholesterol to 300 mg per day have been dropped. So enjoy that egg with less fear of raising your cholesterol levels.
