Egg Consumption Raises Diabetes Risk – 23 April 2009
Have you noticed all the TV commercials for eggs lately? As vegans,
my husband Frank and I stopped eating eggs over twenty years ago.
Here’s something you’re not likely to hear from the media who accept
money for advertising eggs:
“Daily consumption of eggs increases the likelihood of developing
type 2 diabetes, according to a new study published in
Diabetes Care. In this study of about 57,000 men and women
from two large randomized trials, researchers found that daily egg
intake was associated with a 77 percent and 58 percent increased
risk for women and men, respectively.”
– From the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine:
Good Medicine, Spring 2009, Vol. XVIII, No. 2, page 5.

No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
