Why You Should Avoid Consuming Too Much Eggs Has You Age | Some Other Facts About Eggs

in StemSocial8 months ago

Without a question, when it comes to high-quality protein, eggs are one of the most popular foods to mention. When it comes to building muscle and being stronger, they are one of the most significant nutrients to consume. Eggs are also high in nutrients, according to studies.

But first, let's take a closer look at some facts about eggs that you probably didn't know. Moreover, because the egg is made from animals, it contains saturated fat. Saturated fat has long been known to be unhealthy and to boost cholesterol levels. When your cholesterol level rises, your risk of cardiovascular disease rises as well.

Let's take a look at three reasons why you should avoid eating eggs as you age.


Heart Attack Or Stroke


With about 187mg cholesterol per egg, eggs are by far the most common source of cholesterol, according to statistics. Some people believe that dietary cholesterol has no effect on our blood cholesterol, yet studies show that blood cholesterol is raised by eating dietary cholesterol such as eggs

In other words, consuming cholesterol causes cholesterol to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Because eggs contain cholesterol, they are unhealthy to consume as we age.


Heart Attack Or Stroke


Lecithin is a substance found in egg yolks. This substance is converted to the chemical Trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) in your gut flora, and a high level of TMAO has been associated to an increased risk of heart attack or stroke.


Heart Attack Or Stroke


Do you know that eating concentrated forms of animal protein, such as eggs, causes our bodies to create more insulin-like growth factor? Insulin-like Proliferation Factor-1 increases cell division and growth in both healthy and cancer cells, which is why higher levels of this hormone are linked to an increased cancer risk.




Finally, as you grow older, plant-based protein sources such as beans, lentils, legumes, nuts, and seeds can be used to supplement your protein intake. All of the essential amino acids are found in plant-based sources, as well as a variety of vitamins and nutrients.

I was telling someone recently about the horrors of eating too many eggs, I am glad you put it up here. The person might be @deraaa, but I am not too certain at the moment

It was me @pappyelblanco. I told you I can eat 4eggs in a day.

Ahhhh 😧.

😂. E shock you?

Wow, I never knew eggs could also be detrimental to one's health as they grow older. Thanks for sharing

My question tho. What about the white in eggs? I have heard it's perfect for aged people. @jaydr. Doctor, what are your opinions?

Eat your Egg.

As much as it could be harmful in elderly, due to other risk factors for non communicable disease like hypertension and coronary artery disease, the egg is also a rich protein and affordable protein source needed in the young.
There are more harmful food sources we eat often than the innocent egg.
More so it has the "good" amount of cholesterol, attack the cheese and butter eaters.

@mularh 's post was more specific on elderly where lipids are dangerous when in excess,.. It is adviced that from 40 upwards, a bit more care be taken on what we eat.

However, too much of everything is not good, an egg a day I propose.

I m pretty sure you can look up good reasons to eat egg.

Research keeps going on anyway.

Thanks for the mention @deraaa

So, I should only eat one egg?! One?!!!!

Hehe.. Yes Ma.. You should try to spread your love for eggs over other food sources.
