The human body makes all the cholesterol it needs for maintaining healthy nerves and cell membranes. The consumption of additional cholesterol through animal products, the only other source of cholesterol, subjects the human body to a potential overload, leading to clogged arteries and heart disease. Eggs contain high amounts of cholesterol, and they are loaded with fat, which can make you sluggish and overweight. They don’t contain any nutrients that are not found in plant foods.
Eggs carry salmonella, which sickens countless people every year. Salmonella leads to food poisoning, which can result in abdominal cramps, diarrhea, vomiting and, in severe cases, even organ failure or death. Chickens and their eggs are infected with salmonella because of chickens’ filthy living conditions. The only way to avoid all the fat, cholesterol and bacteria in eggs is to keep them off your plate.
