Eating ≥5 eggs per week was associated with lower fasting glucose and systolic blood pressure after four years of follow-up. Higher egg intake was linked to a lower risk of developing impaired fasting glucose, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure in this healt ..read more

Key Takeaways: Maternal intake of eggs and the nutrients found in eggs (choline, lutein/zeaxanthin, DHA) may have a synergistic association with fetal neurodevelopment, which suggests that eggs provide more nutritional value than just the sum of their parts.
