Patients usually ask me how many eggs can they eat in a week?
Eggs contain good quality protein and are a source of healthy fats including omega-3 fats.
However people is still afraid of the CHOLESTEROL, wrongly named Bad Cholesterol.
Bad cholesterol DOES NOT exist. Cholesterol is NOT bad as long as it's consumed moderately, as everything else.
Science is already explaining that moderately high intake of dietary cholesterol or consumption of up to one egg per day is not associated with an elevated risk of stroke.
In terms of Chinese Nutritional Medicine, eggs treat dry cough, hoarse voice, dysentery, blood deficiency, and hyperactive fetus, with more other benefits.
How many eggs can you eat then?
Eating between one and three eggs per day can have several health benefits, but this varies from person-to-person. If you're healthy, 7 eggs a week is HEALTHY.
Be aware of the warnings about consuming raw eggs; it is best always to cook them. Also, be aware that some people are allergic to eggs.
