Yesterday on SUNDAY HOUSE CALL, Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld debunked the myth that eggs are bad for us. He said that recent research has shown no connection between eating eggs daily and high cholesterol. He added that we should eat eggs because they are very nutritious, almost as good for us as broccoli. He also said that this study showed that dieters who ate two eggs for breakfast every day consumed fewer calories than another group of dieters who did not.
That reminded me of an article in the HARVARD HEALTH LETTER which states that coffee may protect against disease. Coffee might also have anti-cancer properties. Last year researchers found that coffee drinkers were 50% less like to get liver cancer than nondrinkers. Some studies have found ties to lower rates of colon, breast and rectal cancers. Heavy coffee drinkers may be half as likely to get diabetes. It may contain chemicals that lower blood sugar.
Now we can have coffee and eggs for breakfast. When will someone find out that bacon is full of vitamins and other good things. I feel a little sorry for all those people who gave up their cup of coffee to improve their health.
All things in moderation.
