New study: Eating eggs may prevent certain diseases (WKRC)
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - If your New Year's resolution is to improve your diet then you'll be glad to see that eggs are back on the menu.
Recently, researchers in Molecular Nutrition and Food Research found a correlation between eating eggs every day and lowering risk for type 2 diabetes.
While reviewing the bloodwork of over 200 people and following them for 20 years, it was found that those who ate more eggs were less likely to be diagnosed with diabetes.
It is unclear why there is a correlation, but it may be beneficial to choose a healthy protein in the morning instead of donuts or other carbs that don't have a lot of nutritional value.
Eggs were originally discouraged due to the amount of cholesterol they contain, but it has been shown that total fat and other things may influence those cholesterol levels more than the eggs themselves.
Even the American Heart Association says you can consume eggs as long as it is part of a heart-healthy diet.
