Eggs Contain Less Cholesterol

Written by Tiffany Wallace, CitiHealth

Eggs have been known for containing high amount of cholesterol, but some new research on that topic should make you egg-cited.

According to he U.S. Department of Agriculture, a large egg today only has 185 milligrams of cholesterol, down from the 215 milligrams an egg contained 10 years ago.

An egg today also has 41 international unites of vitamin D, much higher than the 25 international units measured years ago.

Researchers believe the changes are probably due to changes in the hen’s diets, or the way they are bred.

Basically all you need to know is eggs have gotten healthier all around. So enjoy your omelet guilt free.
