I make it a point of following Dr. Michael Greger and admire his thoroughness. As he repeatedly and whimsically says: ‘…until we put it to the test’!
Really circumspect about prejudice against egg yolks. Personally am product of what many describe as Ancel Keys con job of the 70s. When fats were sacrificed in favor of sugars!
Reason why for years tried to limit egg yolks! Then a period this last decade of searching for organic, range free eggs and abandoning concerns.
Personally argued Cholesterol association to yolks as merely a marker. Some truth to this, but now a little more circumspect!
We may have come full circle, but mainly driven for another reason!
In the last decade we have begun to realize how important our microbiome really is!
These trillions of bacteria, that outnumber our cells 10 to 1, in terms of DNA contribution! As general premise: the choline of meat, milk, cheese and eggs is basis for Trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO)
which is not good for a number reasons, including directly affecting our Arteries.
Hence Heart disease, Strokes from now a different frontier!
But also now concerned about association of Cancer and Eggs specifically. According to Dr. Greger there does appears a connection:
indirectly for Women respecting Breast Cancer, and more directly as being associated within the gut itself, for rectal cancer.
But for men there is that potential prostate cancer! Now a gradual realization of that association seems overwhelming.
This throws a different light, and not a pleasant one, on that specific connection to eggs.
