Stay Young America!

Jul 19, 2021

Do you skip the egg yolks and prefer just the whites? If so, you may be missing out on a number of health benefits. This is Judy Gaman and this your Stay Young America Medical Minute. Egg yolks used to get a bad rap. For a while, doctors told patients to limit egg yolks because of the fat and the cholesterol. Now, we have a better understanding of how the benefits of yokes far outweigh the any negatives. Egg yolks contain important properties, including antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-cancer. As for being bad for your heart – not true – research shows that they actually help protect the heart and help maintain a healthy blood pressure. Even if you don’t have time to make scrambled eggs for breakfast, you can keep boiled and peeled eggs in the fridge for breakfast or a snack on the run. This Stay Young America! Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
