Even though it is said that eggs contain cholesterol, research has shown that eggs actually lower cholesterol levels. A study at the University of Connecticut done with people who ate three or more eggs per day showed that the cholesterol particles in their blood were larger that the cholesterol particles in the blood of people who ate less eggs. The bigger LDL cholesterol particles have more difficulty to pass into the bloodstream and the bigger HDL cholesterol particles are even more capable of removing the bad LDL particles from the blood stream. So that’s a double plus.
Other positive qualities of eggs are that they are an excellent source of protein, iodine, and vitamin B2 and vitamin D. So feel free to eat some eggs.
