Eggs as a matter of fact are one of the prehistoric foods prevalent and rocking till date. Our savior has been saving against going hungry in late nights, early mornings, over hostel boring food or during exam times. Besides saving you from that hunger it contains much nutrition than any other food alone. So let’s get started on knowing our little friend here.

The Other Side
Besides all the nutritional and tasty facts, if consumed in excess, there are some ill-effects on health.
Consuming more than required eggs can lead to a high risk of cardiovascular attack. It is seen that consuming eggs continuously every day increases the blood levels of metabolite which in turn promotes atheroslerosis, trimethylamine-N-oxide and leads to high risk of heart attack.

Just consuming the egg does not ensure your good health as you should check with your vendor all the details regarding the preservation process, how they reach your door finally. They may be stored in unhygienic conditions which leaves them contaminated thus is good for nothing. So be alert.
Also some people may face some allergy as there may be contamination in the eggs. So be careful with that little bomb haha!!!!
Don’t worry it’s perfectly fine to have eggs after intervals and do have complete knowledge of how they arrive in your plate. Eat healthy Grow healthy!!!!!!
