By: Dr. Steve Salvatore, Co-Owner of The American Academy of Personal Training

A new report released by the US Department of Agriculture concludes that eggs have become a “healthy edible” item for your breakfast.  Today’s eggs are 14% lower in cholesterol and have more vitamin D and it’s not genetic engineering.  Apparently, it’s due to the improved quality of the feed given to hens.  Department of Agriculture says that eating one egg a day fits well with dietary guidelines of limiting cholesterol consumption to 300 mg per day.  An average large egg has 185 mg of cholesterol.
