Cleveland Clinic: An egg a day is good for your health (WKRC)

CINCINNATI (WKRC) – Do you have a lot of leftover eggs that you didn't color this Easter?

A new report from nutrition experts at the Cleveland Clinic says go ahead and eat them, just for the health of it.

Eggs are no longer taboo when it comes to good health.

Registered dietitians at the Cleveland Clinic say there is now strong evidence that you can safely eat at least one egg every day if you choose.

Eggs have important nutrients especially for women, such as iron, and choline.

Research shows that this may protect the liver, from too much fat depositing in it, in those with fatty liver disease.

Eggs also have minerals like iodine and selenium, which are not always easy to find in the standard American diet.

The white part of the egg is a great source of protein, and the yolks are a good source of Vitamin A and D.

One word of caution, is about how you prepare them, and what you eat alongside eggs.

Cheese omelets with toast and butter and bacon, can pack on the added calories and saturated fat, which may raise the risk of weight gain and heart problems.
