Busting Myth #2: Eggs (especially egg yolks) are bad for you

The truth doesn’t sell well. Throw in a 24-hour news cycle, difficult-to-understand studies, and media companies scramble for the latest viral hit, and it’s no surprise that misinformation spreads like wildfire. There are some myths that pop up in the media again and again. We’ve investigated the ten biggest myths spread by the media.

If there’s one thing the media is good at, it’s scaring you away from perfectly innocent foods.

Eggs

Eggs have been demonized because their yolks, which are chock full of nutrients, also contain high levels of cholesterol. Though that sounds scary, eating food high in cholesterol doesn’t translate to increased cholesterol in your blood.

The actual research shows that unless you have a pre-existing condition, eggs are a fantastic source of protein, fats, and nutrients. Their association with cardiovascular disease is a myth.

The Truth

Eggs are a great source of protein, fats, and other nutrients. Their association with cardiovascular disease and high cholesterol is severely overblown.
