Eggs finally — and accurately — being incorporated into the heart-health regimen

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

The symptoms, causes and affects of heart disease have no doubt been well-documented for years, but the same can't be said about factual information regarding one of heart health's biggest allies — eggs.

Those days seem to rightfully be coming to a close, though, as technological and medical advances have allowed experts to better understand how eggs have a place at the table of heart-healthy eating, after years spent on various nutritional no-no lists.

Research has shown eggs indeed have heart-protective qualities, including one recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition that found a daily egg intake led to a 12 percent reduced risk of stroke.

Other research found that eating one to three eggs per day resulted in increased levels of high-density lipoprotein, also known as the "good cholesterol," as well as an improved blood lipid profile.

The local farms that make up the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association will once again be helping out the Easter Bunny this year, as they're partnering with Feeding Colorado to donate hundreds of thousands of eggs to food banks, and ensuring those in need will have eggs in time for the holiday.

Members of the media are welcome and encouraged to attend an upcoming event, where the Food Bank of the Rockies’ mobile pantry will be on hand distributing these food donations, and will also be joined by the Easter Bunny and CEP’s mascot, Eggbert.

Personnel and equipment from Commerce City Emergency Responders will be on hand as well, as will the Churn and Burn food truck, serving up breakfast burritos.

Additionally, this Easter Egg-Stravaganza will include prize giveaways, with each attendee heading home with an Easter egg-dyeing kit, and two lucky kids being randomly selected to win new bicycles.
