Another feather in the cap of the vegan community!
This Harvard Medical School study showed that egg eaters had a significantly higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes than did non-egg eaters. In a long-term study of 57,000 U.S. adults, researchers found that those who ate an egg a day were 58 percent to 77 percent more likely than non-egg-eaters to develop type 2 diabetes.
The findings, published in the journal Diabetes Care, do not necessarily mean that eggs themselves put people on a path to diabetes. In fact, it is not only the eggs that put people at risk for diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, but all animal products, including chicken, yogurt, and milk.
Not only do saturated fat and dietary cholesterol damage the arteries, add weight to your middle and to your hips, and put you at risk for cancer, but the animal protein found in these foods cause the body to become acidic, setting the stage for diabetes and other diseases.
The Reuters Health review of the study quoted researchers giving this ludicrous worthless, "Based on the current data, our recommendations would be to consume eggs in moderation and not to exceed six eggs per week."
Six eggs a week! That's ludicrous! The only safe intake of eggs is ZERO! Get your protein from plant sources, such as beans, vegetables, and nuts. These foods will give you countless life-supporting nutrients at the same time.
