Isn't this the most obvious sign that many doctors really do not understand the human body?! It's actually kind of depressing and upsetting at the same time. Think about it... even kids know that the body is all interconnected, starting with the old song "the hip bone is connected to the thigh bone..." If people are limited to just one complaint per visit, how is the doctor supposed to see the overall symptom picture? It's like looking at a single piece of a jigsaw puzzle and trying to guess the picture. You really need to see all pieces and put them together relative to each other to see the picture. I can't believe this is how conventional medical is done these days. It's crazy! These doctors who post things like this need to go back to elementary school.
Please, if you see this at your doctor's office, challenge it!
Now, the study I'll cover today showed that eating four eggs a week could lower the risk of type 2 diabetes in men. It revealed that middle aged and older men who ate approximately four eggs per week had a 38% lower risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) than those who only ate approximately one egg weekly. The association persisted even after factors such as physical exercise, body mass index, smoking and the consumption of fruits and vegetables were taken into consideration.
The study added that eggs contain many beneficial nutrients such as high-quality protein, fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins that could have had an effect on, for example, glucose metabolism and low-grade inflammation, and thus lower the risk of type 2 diabetes.
“In addition to cholesterol, eggs and especially egg yolks are also a rich source of many nutrients that could have a beneficial impact on health... [such as] anti-inflammatory properties,” said the lead researcher of the study.
Eating more than four eggs a week was not shown to bring any extra benefits and those who already have type 2 diabetes should not increase their egg intake, added the team.
