RANDOM INTERESTING EGGFORMATION  (sorry so cheesy- couldn’t resist)

Brown eggs come from chickens with red ear lobes, and white eggs come from chickens with white ear lobes.  There is no nutritional difference between the two.

One large egg has 70 calories and 41 IU of Vitamin D.

Yolks contain two carotenoids: lutein and zeaxanthin.  These help prevent macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in Americans age 65 and older. Studies have shown that generous intakes of these carotenoids have significantly reduced cataract risk up to 20%, and macular degeneration up to 40%.

Cholesterol bullesterol: The American Heart Association revised their guidelines permitting people to eat an egg everyday as part of an average daily cholesterol intake of 300 mg. Current research indicates that saturated fat in the diet (not cholesterol) is the dietary factor most responsible for increasing blood cholesterol levels.
