Do Eggs Raise Cholesterol Levels? – By Team Member: Michelle Crispe
Believe it or not the real answer is do we even care? You might think this is a ballsy claim given the fear that has been instilled in us since the 50’s about cholesterol and it’s role in heart disease. I guess it is ballsy, but let me explain.
Cholesterol is something the body actually makes itself as it is need in the body for things like cellular walls and hormones. Our body actually increases and decreases its production of cholesterol based on our consumption. New studies show that people who have high cholesterol do not necessarily have heart disease. In fact, some of those who have suffered heart attacks don’t even have high cholesterol.
Think about things logically people, do not just let others make up your mind or believe what you hear. Now, eggs have been around for billions of years being some of earth’s creatures only food. I do not know of any dinosaurs with high cholesterol nor have I heard of a Honey Badger suffering a heart attack. Sounds silly but I find it hard to believe that a food that has been around for centuries is bad for us. This is where I feel we have been fed some real bologna.
The real evil lies in sugar, toxins and processed foods and carbohydrates. Studies are showing, and surgeons are confirming, that inflammation in the arterial tissue from damage by sugar and processed fats(not saturated fat) is the real culprit. So again let’s be logical, is it animal fat and eggs that have been around for billions of years that are the issue or could it be possible that sugar, processed food and toxins in our foods and sprayed on our produce which, is a fairly new introduction to our diet, is actually causing the problem.
One way to confirm this is to look at our pets. Wild animals do not have heart attacks, obesity, cancer, diabetes and other ‘human’ diseases but our domesticated friends do. Why is this? Could it be their grain-based, processed food? Food for thought.
