Everyone one has heard of calcium and iron, but most people have never heard of choline, yet it is super important and is often grouped with B vitamins. This compound is used by the brain to build signaling molecules in the brain and build new cell membranes. Studies show that 90 percent of Americans get less than the recommended daily amount of choline.

This is where eggs come in! They are an excellent source of choline, with more than 100mg in every single egg! So for some real brain building power, you can’t beat eggs!

    Interesting, but I’m wondering if the author of this article (I don’t see a name) was funded by….Big Egg.

    I’m sticking with my two a week.

      This article is sickening in more ways than one. This author has been fooled by the junk science put out by Dr. Ronald Krauss and his associates. Krauss is a sell out paid off by the Egg Board, cattlemen and dairy associations. His research is ridiculously flawed and clearly conceived to make eggs, dairy and meat look good nutritionally. Even Time Magazine got fooled by his bogus work. Check out Dr. Michael Greger’s reviews on nutritionfacts.org or by Dr. John McDougall on drmcdougall.com. I am shocked that Natural On published this misleading and dangerous article on eggs.

        Good grief, NaturalOn is publishing this article AGAIN already? I commented on it a month ago. Big Egg is determined, isn’t it!

          And why is NaturalOn continuing to publish this garbage. Does the Egg Board advertise on their website. I am about ready to unsubscribe from NaturalOn if they continue this foolishness.

            You know nothing about eggs. Eggs are probably the single most nutritious food on the planet. Number 1, they contain copious amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin which control macular degeneration. Number 2, eggs contain almost every vitamin and mineral necessary to sustain life. Check your facts, dude. I am almost 72, have eaten eggs all my life, and my cholesterol is close to being perfect!

            Mr. Nauseateme, please do some research before just spouting the hype of the article above; check out this article: http://nutritionfacts.org/video/avoiding-cholesterol-is-a-no-brainer/ Gabe, below, added a link on the patently false claims provided by the Egg Board; in fact the Federal Trade Commission told the Egg Board they could no longer advertise eggs as nutritious, healthy or even safe! The US Court of Appeals upheld that position. So the Egg Board came up with the advertising slogan of the “Incredible, edible egg.” Yeah, eggs are edible but not even safe! In the link above, in large reviews of the dangers of eggs, the Director of Stroke Prevention and Atherosclerosis, states, “The only people who should eat eggs are those who are going to drop dead anyway. The American Heart Association continues to advise against the regular consumption of eggs. I hope you live to a very old healthy age, but please don’t advise people to eat eggs regularly. I am a 64 year old vegan and became vegan only after really studying the current nutrition literature.

            I don’t know who is backing you, but I can show you dozens of site that tout eggs for good health. You are listening to quacks. You are the one who needs to do your own homework. In fact your own body creates blood cholesterol. Dietary cholesterol is barely measurable in the blood.

            I won’t waste any more time on someone who won’t even read the links put in front of his face.

            Here is one of many dozens that show how nutritious eggs are:http://authoritynutrition.com/6-reasons-why-eggs-are-the-healthiest-food-on-the-planet/

            I will bet my house your are a conspiracy theorist: You believe the Earth is a flat disk; you believe that Bush and Cheney planned 911; you believe in alien abductions, and you believe Lee Harvey Oswald was innocent.

          • Roy Salley

            The article you cite is just a copy of the article on NaturalOn. It is such a shame that one can’t have a discussion on the internet without someone resorting to insults. I won’t respond to you again.
