Researchers ate the University of Sydney have proven what many of us have been saying for years! That eating eggs is NOT linked to heart disease.
This study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that eating 12 eggs a week did not increase cardiovascular risk factors such as blood cholesterol levels in people with pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes.
Eggs contain excellent protein as well as antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, so enjoy them!
For people in their later years, choosing egg based breakfasts especially can be a good way to get that extra protein at a time of day when common breakfast options based around fruit/cereal can be lower in protein than is ideal.
