Itlog Everyday is OK!

I am giving a big shout-out to this Eggvocacy by the National Federation of Egg Producers of the Philippines.

Itlog, Tagalog term for "egg."
Researches show eating an egg everyday does not increase risk of heart disease.

The Truth about Eggs and Cholesterol

"A substantial body of scientific research shows that dietary cholesterol has only a small effect on blood cholesterol and that the consumption of eggs - up to an intake of one egg per day - has no detectable effect on heart disease risk in healthy people." - American Council on Science and Health, 2002
