Hooray, eggs are back in vogue! Have you noticed the appearance of poached eggs, deviled eggs, and hard-cooked eggs on restaurant menus? I'm not talking about diners, I mean our trendy, celeb-chef digs. I couldn't be happier for the return of this little nutrition packed ovoid.
The idea that a food that contains 13 essential vitamins and minerals, high-quality protein, antioxidants, and brain-supporting choline should have almost as bad an effect on the heart as a pack of Salems just doesn't pass the smell test, even if your nose is clogged.
The study most recently in the headlines -- just published in the journal Atherosclerosis -- suggests not only that egg ingestion increases the risk of heart disease, but also that the association is as strong as that for cigarettes. I don't believe either is true.
