3 Awful Nutrition Myths Blow Up by the Media

3 Awful Nutrition Myths Blow Up by the Media

meat

Myth 1

Eggs (especially egg yolks) Are Bad For You

Eggs have been demonized because their yolks, which are chock full of nutrients, also contain high levels of cholesterol. Though that sounds scary, eating food high in cholesterol doesn’t translate to increased cholesterol in your blood.The actual research shows that unless you have a pre-existing condition, eggs are a fantastic source of protein, fats, and nutrients. Their association with cardiovascular disease is a myth.
The Truth: Eggs are a great source of protein, fats, and other nutrients. Their association with cardiovascular disease and high cholesterol is severely overblown.

 

Myth 2

Red Meat Causes Cancer

Some compounds, like polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), found in smoked meats, have been found to damage the genome, which is the first step to potential cancer.
The Truth: The fears about red meat and cancer are exaggerated. Eliminating other risks of cancer, like smoking, and practicing healthy lifestyle choices will render the risks of red meat negligible. 

Myth 3

Saturated Fat Is Bad For You

The myth that saturated fat causes cardiovascular disease is not true. Food quality is what matters – there’s a big difference between eating a grass-fed steak and a fast food hamburger.
The Truth: Saturated fat itself will not lead to heart disease or cardiovascular disease. In fact, low fat diets shunning saturated fat are likely detrimental for testosterone production.

 

Moral of the story – don’t believe everything you see or hear. Do your research, get the statistics/evidence then drawn your own educated decision.
