A new study reported in the New England Journal of Medicine says
eggs can increase the risk of heart disease because of the way they
are digested, much like meat. In the case of eggs, it is lecithin in
them that raises the risk of heart disease due to its effect on
intestinal bacteria. When you eat an egg, bacteria in the gut help
convert the lecithin to TMAO. It turns out that those people with
the highest levels of TMAO in their blood had a "2.5-fold higher
risk of major adverse cardiovascular events" compared to those with
the lowest amount of TMAO.
Bad News for Egg Lovers: Heart Disease Study Spoils Our Breakfast:
Eggs are certainly not needed in a healthy, balanced diet
because they are high in cholesterol and saturated fat. Moreover,
eggs are produced in ways that hens and their babies suffer
egregious cruelty. Replacing eggs for a plant-based food is
certainly good for our bodies and good for God’s chickens.
