“Red Meat And Eggs Looking Up”
In the 1990s we were told studies suggested that we no longer eat eggs or red meat due to health dangers. But, is that correct? Studies in rabbits indicated an increased risk for higher cholesterol levels and heart disease from eating eggs. Whereas, red meat was accused of causing heart failure and cardiovascular disease. Millions of Americans religiously avoided those foods but the prior incriminating studies are now being scrutinized for accuracy. Current research is being presented in the U.K. and the U.S. that debunks the previous beliefs that eggs and red meat are hazardous for your health. Actually, they may not be so bad after all. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends a limit of 300 mg of cholesterol per day, and two eggs exceeds that limit. For people with high cholesterol, doctors only recommend 2-4 eggs per week.
