Study: Japanese Women Triple Their Risk Of Dying From Cancer If They Eat More Than 2 Eggs A Day

Eggs are layed by female hens. That makes females valuable; males not as valuable. For every egg-laying hen, approximately one male chick is killed as a newborn. Worldwide, around 7 billion male chicks are killed each year … because they don’t lay eggs.

Before I leave the topic of eggs:

Re-Evaluation Of The Associations Of Egg Intake With Serum Total Cholesterol And Cause-Specific And Total Mortality In Japanese Women, European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, June 2018

Japanese women consuming more than 2 eggs per day (compared to 1 egg/day) DOUBLED their risk of dying from any cause and TRIPLED their risk of dying from cancer.

Conclusions: Egg intake was associated with cancer and total mortality. Reducing egg intake may have some definitive health benefits in women in Japan, at least.

Japanese data set, Japanese researchers. We have to go to a country where research is not dominated by industry for more objectivity.

      The things we do to animals … I can’t…

      And if you happen to be a hen, avoiding that fate, you get to live in cramped, diseased conditions. You get to have the end of your beak, unceremoniously and painfully, seared off. I don’t go into these things but they’re there in my mind. We do this for the fleeting enjoyment of a mouthful of omelette.
