What a load of horseshit. Reminds me of the old Ancel Keys studies; - Bob is unhealthy - Bob stopped drinking, smoking, began exercising, and focusing on reducing stress. He also cut out the bacon and eggs he eats in the morning. - Miraculously, after 6 months, Bob is healthier. - Therefore, bacon and eggs are bad for you! I've tested the blood lipids of hundreds (if not thousands) of people. I can assure you, high fat foods like eggs are NOT an issue. There are TONS of studies the debunk this nonsense. http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/early/2016/02/10/ajcn.115.122317.abstract https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16340654?dopt=Citation http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/55/2/400.abstract This 5-month study in 70 young men on a high-fat diet compared the effects on cholesterol of 3, 7, and 14 eggs per week.
