CholesterolFor many years eggs have been perceived as being unhealthy and potentially responsible for raising low density cholesterol, or bad cholesterol. However, now it seems that despite 40 years of warnings against eggs, there is actually no scientific evidence that eating eggs as part of the overall balance diet will have very little impact of raising levels of bad cholesterol.

On the other hand one egg contains loads of high quality protein and at least 11 essential vitamins and minerals. Recent studies have indicated that eggs are one of the richest sources of the mineral choline and one of the few food sources of vitamin D. Vitamin D is critical in reducing risk of developing a number of health conditions, including various types of cancers.
