Patients with diabetes of the 2nd type often have increased levels of “bad” cholesterol associated with heart disease.
But they don’t have to limit egg consumption because of the fact that this product contains large amount of cholesterol. They conducted a study in which during the year was watching two groups of volunteers. During the first phase, one group of people had to eat 12 eggs per week, and the second group – not more than 2.
In the second stage of the experiment volunteers were transferred to diet for weight loss, intake of eggs remained unchanged. They lost approximately the same weight.
Scientists have found that consumption of eggs by people who have a predisposition to diabetes, the first or second type, does not bear the risk of cardiovascular disease, as previously thought.
