    How healthy are eggs

    Shop Now
    Hey I am in the process of going primal but made an omlette today and saw that eggs have about 80% of daily cholesterol. I ate 2 and mixed it with egg beaters. How much cholesterol/fat is ok? I have read about people eating like 6-8 eggs/day. What are the effects on heart eating primal with this much cholesterol?

    Thanks,

    I am in the process of going primal and still researching it.

    1. Cholesterol doesn't cause heart disease http://thehealthyskeptic.org/cholest...-heart-disease
    2. Eating cholesterol doesn't cause high cholesterol http://www.physorg.com/news139156140.html http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/full/75/2/333
    3. I think that 2 or 3 is healthier than a dozen a day. And I also think that they absolutely should be pasture-raised free-range or omega 3 flax-fed eggs. But in that case yes, very healthy. Eat up.
