Have you been avoiding egg yolks because you are worried about your cholesterol count? Well the truth is, the cholesterol in egg yolks is so poorly absorbed that even eating it everyday won't raise levels of the artery-clogging blood fats.
What's more? Yolks are so rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, powerful antioxidants that soak into delicate eye cells, shielding them from UV light. Yolks are yummy and healthy so include them in your diet, your eyes will thank you later on. Because according to experts, consuming five yolks a week could help slow the growth of cataracts and cut the risk of macular degeneration by 42 percent or more.
