WASHINGTON, D.C. – They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but the new craze could be eggs.

For years physicians warned people to limit how many eggs they ate, especially if they had high cholesterol. But experts now say that an average healthy person should limit daily cholesterol intake to 300 milligrams a day. One egg only has 186 milligrams, and it’s packed with all this other good stuff.

Experts say they’re high in things like:

  • Protein
  • Lupine
  • Zeaxantyhin
  • Colene
  • Vitamin D

Eggs are also important for brain health and they`re important for the bones and the immune system. Oh, and did we mention you can get all that for only 70 calories an egg?!

This all sounds like egg-cellent news!
