Egg News PETA Doesn’t Want You to Know

Animal rights activists–as distinct from animal welfare–want to end all domestication. They don’t want us to use animals for any reason, food, research, clothing, entertainment, or even, companionship.

Toward that end, rightists often lie about food and its safety. For example, they have repeatedly claimed that meat and eggs are intrinsically bad for humans.

Now, Australia’s government agency for scientific research, CISRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization) has concluded that eggs are good for us! From the Daily Mail story:

Consuming just one egg a day reduces the risk of stroke by 12 percent, scientists say. A study, led by US scientists, also shows that eating egg each day had no association with coronary heart disease – the leading cause of death worldwide.

Researchers reached the conclusion by reviewing a host of studies published over a period of 33 years – between 1982 and 2015 – which involved more than 275,000 participants…

Lead researcher Dr Dominik Alexander, of the EpidStat Institute, US, said research is needed to understand the connection between egg consumption and stroke risk.

But he added: ‘Eggs do have many positive nutritional attributes, including antioxidants, which have been shown to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. ‘They are also an excellent source of protein, which has been related to lower blood pressure.’

We shouldn’t be surprised by these results. Humans are naturally omnivores.

But don’t expect PETA and its fellow animal rights travelers to veer away from their vegan agenda, including lying about the health impact of eating animal products. Indeed, if eating eggs could add fifty years to your life, they would tell you not to eat them.

Why? They don’t care about your health if it would interfere with instituting animal rights.
