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.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
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.
