New Study Reveals Eating An Egg A Day Can Keep Heart Disease Away

Egg-cellent news!

Just like most health-conscious people, you’ve probably had an on-again, off-again relationship with eggs. One minute you’re hearing people claiming their cholesterol causes heart disease and the next they say you better eat the whole egg or you’re missing out.

However, a new study seems to have finally settled the debate. According to a study in China, people who eat an egg just about every day may have a lower risk of heart attack and stroke than individuals who don’t eat eggs at all.

It’s no secret that eggs are delicious and nutritious but their high cholesterol forces some people to skip them from their daily meals. However, the new study may give everyone the reason to give eggs another try.

Eggs are a prominent source of dietary cholesterol but they also contain high-quality protein, many vitamins and bioactive components, such as phospholipids and carotenoids.

According to the co-author of the study, Canqing Yu, previous studies looking at associations between eating eggs and impact on health have been inconsistent – and most of them found insignificant associations between egg consumption and coronary heart disease or stroke.

He added:

“Stroke, including hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke, is the first cause of premature de ath, followed by ischemic heart disease.”

But during the study, researchers found that consumption of up to one egg daily was linked with lower rates of strokes and heart disease compared with not eating eggs.

Researchers examined survey data on egg consumption among 416,213 adult participants in China, ranging in age from 30 to 79, who joined the study without a history of heart disease. About nine percent of them avoided eggs altogether while 13 percent ate roughly one egg every day.

The group was followed up around nine years later. Participants who ate up to one egg daily had a 26 percent lower risk of hemorrhagic stroke. Egg eaters also enjoyed a 12 percent reduced risk of ischemic heart disease.

The authors concluded:

“The present study finds that there is an association between moderate level of egg consumption (up to 1 egg/day) and a lower cardiac event rate.

Our findings contribute scientific evidence to the dietary guidelines with regard to egg consumption for the healthy Chinese adult.”

Man Sues Parents For Giving Birth To Him Without His Consent

“I love my parents… but they had me for their joy and their pleasure.”

Did you also rebel against your parents during your teenage years? Ever told them you "didn't ask to be born"? We're guessing you probably have. Many of us have experienced going against our parents, regardless of how good they are, thinking we know better than they do - only to eventually realize later in our lives that yes, we were just young and stupid back in the days.

That's why it's actually surprising that we are now hearing news about an adult man who is actually taking his rebellion to the next level - he says he's planning to sue his parents for giving birth to him without his consent. Sounds strange, you say? You bet it is!

Meet anti-natalist Raphael Samuel, who often sports a sunglass and a fake beard in his social media posts.
