Recent studies have found that eating eggs increases the risk of dying from a heart attack, but is this true? Find out in this video.

In this video, we’re going to talk about some of the new data surrounding eggs and their role in heart disease. Out of ten recent studies on eggs and heart disease, all of the studies were observational, and all but two of the studies were self-reported.

Studies that require people to recall everything that they’ve eaten over a period of time are generally inaccurate. People often forget what they’ve eaten and focus on the positive things they can remember eating rather than reporting the negative.

Questionnaires do not prove causation. There was also a conflict of interest in many of these studies.

Eggs are one of the most nutrient-dense foods you can consume. The egg yolk contains almost every nutrient except vitamin C.

Egg yolks from pasture-raised eggs are an excellent source of the following:
•Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12
•The active form of vitamin A (retinol)
•Vitamin E
•Vitamin K2
•Vitamin D
•Omega-3 fatty acids
•Potassium, magnesium, and selenium

Eggs are the best source of protein next to human breast milk and are one of the best sources of choline.

Egg yolks promote healthy levels of cholesterol. They can increase HDL cholesterol and can increase the size of your LDL cholesterol. Egg yolks are the perfect combination of protein and fat and can help reduce insulin resistance.

Egg yolks contain lutein and zeaxanthin—carotenoids that are most commonly found in vegetables. These carotenoids are more bioavailable in eggs and help protect the eye from macular degeneration and cataracts. They also protect the endothelial tissue inside of your arteries.

Eggs don't cause heart problems—they help with heart problems!

    Thank you Dr. Berg, I love eggs! As a retired RN I have known for a long time that some doctors are paid by Big Pharma and so are hospitals. I became very wary about the medical establishment and decided to look into diet and natural therapies. So glad you break down the false narrative that is out there so that lay people can understand. Studies can get quite confusing.

    I’ve always heard eggs were bad for cholesterol. When the doctor told me several years ago that my cholesterol was slightly high I completely cut out eggs. Went back the next year. Even higher. The doctor told me that eggs don’t cause high cholesterol. 🤦🏼‍♀️ I knew so little about health back then. I’m so glad for all the knowledge I’ve learned since then.

    • @Chiroman527 on January 29, 2024 at 2:15 pm

      Spot On… My PCP / Internist who retired last year has been bugging me to take Statins for 16 years. When My Cholesterol hit 270 – yes, it was concerning. I tried a mild dosage of a Statin. Within 3 days, I started to have more severe than normal Calf Cramping. I did already experience some form my Stenosis in my Lumbar spine, but this Intensified it alot. Threw them right out the window. I have cut out poor eating best I can, much less Sugar, more Veggies, More Fruit, less on my plate for any meal, but still can’t lose weight. However, I persevere with healthful eating and now more exercise (as much as I can handle with spinal conditions). Some years ago, about 14 or so, the doctor told me that High Chol. is 50-50 Hereditary/ Diet. My Number was about 255 at that time. Started a more strict eating policy, much more salad, only lean meats, cut out any desserts. The next Blood test showed it dropped to about 225. He still wanted to prescribe statins. I refused.

    • @forester057 on January 29, 2024 at 5:03 pm

      Cholesterol is made by the liver. I trust my body more than big pharma to decide how much cholesterol I need. Give the body what it needs beef and eggs and not what breaks it (veg oils,sugar and carbs). Then you can trust your body to decide what it needs. Less veggies. More beef and eggs.
