Eggs are unborn baby chickens. There, I said it. And if you really think about it, I mean REALLY think about it, who wants to eat a chicken’s embryo? Doesn’t sound too appetizing now, does it? If that thought doesn’t make you want to give up your morning omelet, here are 10 more reasons why you should think twice before cracking open your next egg.
1. Fat, Fat, Fat
Eating eggs aren’t necessarily going to make you fat, but they will fill your blood vessels with fat. Eggs are chock full of saturated fat and cholesterol. In fact, three eggs or more a week have been shown to cause an increase in artery plaque buildup. Clogged arteries are known to be a strong predictor of heart disease and stroke. One egg may contain more than your daily recommended amount of cholesterol, and high dietary cholesterol has been shown to cause inflammation and heart problems.
