Eggs Linked to Heart Disease Once Again

A new study reported in the New England Journal of Medicine says eggs can increase the risk of heart disease because of the way they are digested, much like meat. In the case of eggs, it is lecithin in them that raises the risk of heart disease due to its effect on intestinal bacteria. When you eat an egg, bacteria in the gut help convert the lecithin to TMAO. It turns out that those people with the highest levels of TMAO in their blood had a "2.5-fold higher risk of major adverse cardiovascular events" compared to those with the lowest amount of TMAO.

Eggs are certainly not needed in a healthy, balanced diet because they are high in cholesterol and saturated fat. Moreover, eggs are produced in ways that hens and their babies suffer egregious cruelty. Replacing eggs for a plant-based food is certainly good for our bodies and good for God’s chickens.
