Myth: Egg Yolks Are Bad For Your Health ❥ http://bestpickr.com/egg-nutrition-facts

Because of high cholesterol content, eggs have been associated with high blood cholesterol diseases, such as heart attacks. For this same reason, many gym, fitness workout and body building trainers would only eat the whites and avoid the yellow "chicken" itself.

That is until 2000, when the American Heart Association (AHA) announced that it is 'ok' to have an egg everyday for adults.

The Truth About Egg Yolks

Scientists found that while the egg yolk is high in cholesterol, it is not the direct cause for heart diseases. It is the saturated fat and trans fat commonly present in commercially processed food, such as fries, chocolate, etc. that affect our blood cholesterol the most.

Eggs yolks have very high quality (gold standard) healthy nutrition facts to fat content ratio.

80%+ of good nutrients, such as protein, vitamins, carotenoids, minerals, fatty acids like the Omega-3, and many other disease fighting nutrients that help your body naturally fight aging problems, while increasing your brain's memory capacity, are contained within the egg yolk, not the whites!


  • It is healthy to eat eggs both white and yolk, in moderated amount (one egg a day)
  • Keep it refrigerated and cook well before consumption to benefit the most from nutrients
  • Eggs keep you feeling full longer with less calories than most food - good for weight loss

Surprisingly, despite the rumor around eggs having unhealthily high cholesterol content, a typical hen lays an egg that has:

  • 0.9% vitamins, minerals & salts
  • 1.7% polyunsaturated fat
  • 3.2% saturated fat
  • 4.4% of monounsaturated fat
  • 12.5% protein
  • 75.1% water

As you can see, there is a lot more beneficial nutrients in an egg than there are bad saturated fats. Considering an average person eats 182 eggs per year, that only amounts to roughly 333 grams  (11.7 ounces) of saturated fat consumed vs. 1.32 kgs (46.6 ounces) of protein gained, with the typical egg weighing 58 grams (2 ounces) :)
