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!

Thanks for watching! I hope this helps you understand the health benefits of eggs and the issues with the new data connecting eggs to heart attacks. I’ll see you in the next video.

    00:13 🍳 Eating eggs is linked to an increased risk of dying from heart disease, according to scientific studies mentioned by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
    00:51 🚫 Eggs may also be connected to the development of certain types of cancer, including colon, rectal, and prostate cancer.
    02:13 🧐 The studies cited are mainly observational and questionnaire-based, lacking the credibility of experimental, randomized controlled trials.
    03:35 💼 Some studies suggesting harm from eggs have potential conflicts of interest, involving individuals connected to pharmaceutical companies selling anti-cholesterol medications.
    05:12 🥚 Egg yolks are nutrient-dense, containing vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12, A (retinol), E, K2, and D, as well as choline, minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, and carotenoids like lutein and zeaxanthin.
    06:49 ❤ Eating eggs can support cardiovascular health by providing Vitamin E, Vitamin K2, and other nutrients that contribute to heart health.
    08:11 🍳 Eggs can increase the particle size of LDL cholesterol, potentially reducing the risk of cardiovascular issues, and they may help reduce insulin resistance.
    09:06 📚 When evaluating studies on eggs, consider the study type (preferably experimental over observational), potential conflicts of interest, and the credibility of the source. Eggs can be a heart-healthy food when sourced from pasture-raised, healthy chickens.

    How did I survive to age 75 eating eggs every day?

  • @seanjohal7 says:

    I’ve been having 8 eggs, 9 eggs a day, with fish, and protein shakes for years. Not always the same amount, as I fast, and eat steaks to. 43 years old. I felt worse on high sugar back in my 20s. Every healthy person I know has eggs in staples. Best available protein.

      Which protein powder is healthy? I want to use them but so many bad ones about

    • @varoon7338 says:

      @@fair98fairI use whey protein isolate for years now, It’s a bit more expensive, but more “clean”. However, it depends on the organism, you might have to switch types of protein from dairy to plant based (avoid soy proteins, they are mainly made from GMO soy) like pea protein, as far as I know it depends on how tolerant your body is for dairy food. But I’m not in any way specialized for this, just sharing my 2 cents. 🙂

      ​@varoon7338 it’s great you follow Dr. BERG, but I’m pretty sure he has a few videos that say DO NOT consume Whey Protein.

    Dr. Berg… Thank you for saving my life 5 years ago. (Adrenals)
    About Eggs… They are a complete meal that we have lived off of from the beginning!
    If you had chickens, you could survive.
    They are trying to eliminate all real food.

  • @user-fv5ms4sz8e says:

    Eating whole foods is okay. I remember the first time they said to quit eating eggs decades ago and immediately brain and heart related diseases skyrocketed off the charts. “They” may claim eggs are bad for you, but the data proves that not eating eggs is a much worse prospect. The eggs aren’t the problem, it’s the forever chemicals leaching out of the Teflon coated skillets and the vegetable oil.

    • @vikinglife6316 says:

      They say meat is bad, saturated fat is bad, butter is bad, eggs are bad, Milk is bad. They been doing this for years only now there is agendas.

    • @vikinglife6316 says:

      Notice that all these studies came out after the introduction of the V? Maybe, just maybe these are to cover for the real cause of all these heart attacks. Look up everything that can cause a heart attack now. They just make the stuff up as they go.

      i saw a you tube video that claimed that eating lots of carbs can cure diebitis?

      If only these studies were even HALF true. Of course, that would require those sources to be based on wanting to find anything but the predetermined outcome.

    Thanks Dr. Berg. About 29 years ago I decided I should try eating as much like those grandparents as possible. Nothing I’ve seen on your channel has led me to doubt that decision. 🙂
