The way you prepare them determines how healthy – or risky – the cholesterol in eggs is to your heart…
If you scramble eggs, it exposes the cholesterol, mostly contained in the yolk, to dangerous oxidation. And this is when it can lead to atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease
So how can eggs possibly be harmless AND possibly kill you at the same time? Dr Wright explains:
Almost a century ago, the famous Russian researcher Nikolai Anitschkov fed cholesterol to rabbits. The rabbits developed atherosclerotic vascular disease as a result. After that, most doctors believed cholesterol causes atherosclerosis.
But, about half a century later, in a much less publicised study, another researcher attempted to duplicate Anitschkov’s research. But this time, unlike Anitschkov, this scientist was careful not to expose the cholesterol to air which causes it to oxidise. In his study, the rabbits did not develop coronary atherosclerosis and their arteries remained clear.
This follow-up study proved that oxidised cholesterol, not cholesterol itself, can cause coronary atherosclerosis.
Keeping eggs heart-healthy…
Don’t get put off eggs. They contain lots of vitamins and minerals: They’re rich in the vitamin B family and also contain vitamins A and D. Eggs are also rich in selenium, lutein, zeaxanthin and carotenoids
If you generally eat well and take your daily supplements, including anti-oxidants, the occasional scrambled egg certainly won’t kill you. But if you’re a scrambled egg fan, you may want to switch over to poached or hard boiled eggs. These cooking methods are expose the eggs to less oxidation and are unlikely to damage your heart or arteries.
This enzyme is so powerful it sends patients with congestive heart failure into remission...
By Carla Pinto
This enzyme is one of the top 10 remedies sold in Japan. It's also widely used in part of Europe. And no wonder! It has been used as a treatment for the early stages of congestive heart failure when used in high enough dosages. It actually improves the function of the healthy part of the heart and it also slows the damaging effects of high LDL cholesterol. And although some health-care providers are finally acknowledging its benefits, many people still haven't even heard of it.
Why is it not more generally used in this country if it's so effective?
The answer is simple.
It's not going to make anyone a lot of money. Not doctors. Not pharmaceutical companies. Not the media. Nobody! And let's face it. Pharmaceutical giants don't want their customers to reverse heart damage with an easily obtainable, affordable alternative to their expensive prescriptions. Why would they? It's bad business!
