Are Eggs Healthy? Here ’s What Experts Say

Eggs dominate the menus of all sorts of breakfast spots, from fast-food chains to organic cafes. But the humble egg comes with a lot of questions: Will eggs raise your cholesterol? Should you order an egg-white omelet or embrace the yolks? And what about organic eggs — are they really more nutritious? Whether you eat them every day or just occasionally, there’s plenty to learn about how to incorporate eggs into a healthy diet. Here, dietitians weigh in on what you need to know about nutrition in eggs. Are eggs healthy? Nutrition experts agree that the protein and vitamins in eggs make them a healthy option. “I would say eggs are very healthy, with 13 essential vitamins and minerals,” says registered dietitian Brigitte Zeitlin. “Plus, they are a good source of high-quality protein, which is what our bodies use to build and maintain strong, healthy muscles.” One large egg has about 6 grams of protein, according to the USDA’s nutrition database. One large egg also contains only 72 calories, providing a lot of nutrition in a small caloric package. Eggs are also rich in nutrients including biotin (which helps you convert food into usable energy), choline (an essential micronutrient involved in metabolism, among other functions), vitamin A (important for the immune system) and lutein and zeaxanthin (antioxidants that help protect your body from free radicals), says registered dietitian Ryan Maciel. “Eggs are also one of the only food...

Authors: Lamy S, Houivet E, Benichou J, Marret S, Thibaut F, Perinatal network of Upper-Normandy Abstract Many pregnant women, in the world, drink caffeine-containing beverages. Maternal caffeine consumption during pregnancy may have adverse effects on foetus but results are conflicting. Our goals were to estimate the prevalence of caffeine use in a cohort of French pregnant women using maternal self-reports and to evaluate the association between caffeine consumption during pregnancy and delivery and newborn characteristics. All pregnant women who gave birth in a large French urban area during a limited period of ...

The sensing electrode materials are a series of Pt-Cu alloys (the atomic ratios of Pt to Cu are 1:0, 2:1, 1:1, 1:2) supported on carbon fibers. The structure and morphology of the materials are characterized by XRD, SEM and TEM. The electrochemical properties of the materials are tested by cyclic voltammetry (CV...

SchmidtAbstractTrauma-exposed individuals, specifically those with higher posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS), are at elevated risk of developing alcohol-related problems. One mechanism via which PTSS may contribute to problematic alcohol use is poor attentional control (AC). AC theory suggests that increases in PTSD-related distress will reduce AC, which could then yield greater problematic alcohol use. An alternative path suggests poor AC amplifies PTSS, the...

CONCLUSIONS: GC treatment has implications in CVR, despite in SSc GC doses administered are lower than in other autoimmune diseases (in our cohort even prednisone ≤10 mg daily was associated with ED). GC may be associated with an early vascular damage in these patients, which could lead to changes in FMD, ED and finally AP. On the other hand, optimum levels of 25(OH)D3 seemed to be beneficial against vascular damage. PMID: 32083542 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Patients with axSpA are more likely to be reclassified into the very-high risk category after carotid ultrasound than controls. The influence of traditional cardiovascular risk factors on this reclassification differs between patients and controls. PMID: 32083538 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
