Doctor Borodin: if you eat too many eggs, you can “eat up” atherosclerosis

Dietician, therapist Irina Borodina, a nutritionist, said that if you eat too many eggs, you can “eat up” atherosclerosis.

Normal – six eggs per week for a person who has no contraindications.

— Eggs should not be consumed in acute pancreatitis. They should also be eaten with caution if you have diseases of the liver and gallbladder, since the yolk has a choleretic effect and can provoke an exacerbation of cholelithiasis, noted Borodina.

More details about the dangers and benefits of eggs:< br>

  • Eggs contain many important nutrients, including high-quality proteins, iron, vitamins B12 and D, selenium and choline.
  • Egg yolk contains lutein and zeaxanthin, which protect the eyes from age-related changes and reduce the risk of developing cataracts.
  • Choline, found in eggs, is an important nutrient for brain and nervous system health.
  • Eggs are easily available, relatively inexpensive and perfectly “fight off” the feeling of hunger.

Damage of eggs:

  • Egg yolk contains cholesterol, which may increase blood cholesterol levels in some people.
  • Egg allergies are quite common.
  • Improperly storing or undercooking eggs may pose a risk of contamination by pathogens such as salmonella.
