Eggs: Journal Gets it Right

From eNewsletter 2/6/2023

DID YOU KNOW that February is heart health month? This issue will focus heavily on heart health and there's no time like the present.

According to a study in the Journal of American College of Cardiology, less than seven percent of the nation’s adult population (20 years and older) have what the authors consider good cardiometabolic health.

This measure includes five key components of health: blood pressure, blood sugar, blood cholesterol, adiposity (being either overweight or obese), and the presence or absence of cardiovascular disease. When the authors extrapolated the numbers based upon each component, the statistics looked even worse.

Of course, most of our clients do not fall into this category, but we are always looking to optimize. The following sheds light on the newest cardiometabolic data and lifestyle suggestions.

Eggs: Journal Gets it Right!

Steve: For decades, we've been imploring public health officials, researchers, and practitioners to refrain from vilifying eggs. Instead of summarily writing off eggs as unhealthful, simply define what types of eggs are healthful and which are not. Moreover, urging the ;public to accompany their eggs with more healthful breakfast items is paramount.

Finally, a prestigious journal has supported this!

Authors of a brilliant study in European Heart Journal decided to scrutinize the egg consumption pattern in three continents. The egg images were subdivided into four categories:

  • Plain or minimally processed (boiled, poached, sunny side up, or Shakshuka).

  • Processed and/or enriched (scrambled, fried, omelet, or Benedict)

  • Plain with side dishes (bacon, ham, corned beef, or sausage)

  • Processed with side dishes.

In Asia, breakfast eggs are predominantly consumed unadulterated, whereas in the USA, breakfast eggs most often either are scrambled, fried, and/or accompanied by bacon, ham, or sausage. In Europe, breakfast egg consumption shows a mixed pattern.

Thus, the authors suggest that it is not the eggs per se but rather the ingredients of their preparation and their accompanying dishes that exert the detrimental outcome associated with eggs.

Here is a quote from the researchers' conclusion: "Many studies on egg consumption and outcome have been falling into the trap of association fallacy; eggs are judged guilty by being associated with some well-known malefactors such as butter, bacon, ham, and sausage".
