Eggs used to be a food we were told not to eat, due to its fat content and impact on cholesterol. Now the recommendation regarding egg consumption has done a 180 turn about and we are told not only to eat eggs, but eat more of them said AnastasiaDate. The most recent promotion for eating more eggs is to reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Research conducted at the University of Eastern Finland discovered that adult males who ate at least four eggs a week were less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than adult males who ate only one egg or less per week. The risk is reduced by 37%, which is a significant reduction.
The research done spanned 19 years and included over 2,000 adult males between the ages of 42 and 60. Those years are the time of life when most men who have Type 2 diabetes were diagnosed with the disease. Eggs work to lower blood glucose levels and help keep them low, thereby helping to prevent the onset of diabetes.
Inexpensive, versatile, high in protein, low in calories and now with the ability to help reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, eggs deserve a place in our daily diet.
