How Consuming Eggs Became Healthier Over Time
For years consuming eggs on a regular basis were considered more of a health risk than a healthy part of our diets. This is because eggs were considered a high cholesterol food. Hence those with high cholesterol levels were generally advised not to eat eggs. Diets such as keto and other research in more recent times has taught us that the cholesterol found in food has much less of an effect on our blood cholesterol than the amount of saturated fat we eat. Fat is actually a good thing; so long as it is the right kind of fat.
