Un uovo al giorno e il tuo medico non lo togli piu' di torno

Mangiare uova è una scelta che comporta la sofferenza degli animali (anche negli allevamenti biologici i pulcini maschi vengono uccisi alla nascita e le galline ovaiole sono destinate al macello solo dopo 18 mesi di vita perchè non più produttive rispetto alle necessità) e per noi non è salutare, anche se si tratta di piccole quantità.

Secondo l'ultima meta-analisi sui principali studi condotti, dal 1930 ad oggi, relativi al consumo di uova ed i rischi ad esso correlati, mangiando molte uova si incorre al 19% di rischio di malattie cardiovascolari, al 68% di rischio di diabete e, avendo il diabete, all'85% di rischio di malattie cardiache. Persino mangiare meno di un uovo al giorno è associato ad un alto rischio di malattie cardiache. Infatti, consumando poco più di mezzo uovo al giorno aumenta la possibilità di rischio di malattie cardiache tra il 6 e il 40% e di diabete del 29%.

In my video, Eggs vs. Cigarettes in Atherosclerosis, I suggested that eggs were bad for our arteries, smoking more than a pack a day for ten years was bad for your arteries, and combining egg-eating and smoking was even worse, thus the effect of eggs and smoking appears to be additive. But egg yolks alone were associated with artery-clogging plaque buildup nearly two thirds as bad as smoking. This certainly ruffled some feathers. Yes, eggs are by far the #1 source of cholesterol in the American diet, but letters to the editor like this one protested that dietary cholesterol may have very little impact on blood cholesterol levels, citing a study published in 1971 performed on eight people. But if you look at dozens of studies all put together, covering hundreds of study subjects, you find that blood cholesterol concentration is clearly increased by added dietary cholesterol. Here’s an extreme example just to illustrate, a year in the life of a study subject taken on and off eggs. First they take him off eggs, put him on a cholesterol free diet, and his cholesterol plummets within just three weeks. Then they give him lots of eggs and he’s back in trouble, and stays there until they take the eggs away and put him back on the cholesterol free diet and so on and so forth on and off like a light switch made out of eggs. Of course the only reason we care our about our cholesterol levels or how much plaque is building up inside our arteries is because we want to avoid the consequences, like a heart attack. So, do eggs increase our risk of cardiovascular disease or not? Here’s the latest meta-analysis, the latest compilation of all the best studies on egg consumption and risk of heart disease going back to 1930. When you put them all together, what do you find? Overall, those that ate the most eggs had a 19% increased risk of cardiovascular disease, a 68% increased risk of diabetes, and then once you got diabetes, an 85% increased risk of heart disease. And it didn’t take much, less than a single egg a day was associated with a significantly increased risk of heart disease. Just over a half an egg a day may increase heart disease risk between 6 and 40%, and the risk of diabetes 29%. They conclude that their findings support the American Heart Association dietary guidelines, which advise restricted egg consumption in adults for preventing cardiometabolic disease, like diabetes, our seventh leading cause of death, and heart disease, killer number one.
