    Default No, An Egg A Day Doesn't Increase Stroke Risk

    Just in case you were in any doubt, cholesterol in your diet doesn't increase your chances of heart disease and stroke. Eating an egg a day carries no risk—even in people who carry a hereditary gene that supposedly makes them vulnerable, a new study has confirmed. Although eggs are high in cholesterol, they don't increase the risk of stroke, even if you eat one every day for 21 years, say researchers who tracked the diets of 1,950 healthy men for that length of time.

    Haha, I think I knew that, having been born on a NH poultry farm (back when poultry farms were chickens in barns, not in batteries). I still enjoy a lot of organic eggs.

    I almost didn't post this, as I know the regular members are already aware of eggs as nutritious food. But it's always new to someone!

    Julieanne, thanks for posting this. We all need to be reminded that a "whole" egg is the perfect food, containing dozens of vitamins and minerals. Egg yolks, undeservedly, have been demonized because they contain cholesterol. But, here's the rest of the story.....egg yolks also contain "lecithin," which is a phospholipid made up of essential fatty acids and choline (part of the B complex vitamin). Many studies prove that lecithin markedly inhibits cholesterol absorption in the intestines. In addition, lecithin keeps the arteries pliable so cholesterol does not stick to arterial walls, thus debunking the notion that egg cholesterol contributes to cardiovascular disease. An organic, pastured egg is the perfect food, and one of the healthiest foods one could consume.

    Of course, Mr. Wiz. An egg is a boneless chicken!
