    Eating eggs every day? Here are surprising side effects you must know | Action Punjab


    ACTION PUNJAB NEWS Desk: Eggs are a nutritious food source with high-quality proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Consuming them on a daily basis may cause side effects for some individuals. 

    It is important to note that individual responses can differ, and not everyone will see the same results. Here are some side effects of eating eggs every day:

    Cholesterol Levels

    Eggs contain a lot of dietary cholesterol, and eating them in large quantities may affect your cholesterol levels. Eggs are nutrient-dense, but the yolk contains cholesterol. Elevated cholesterol levels are linked to an

    increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. Individual reactions vary, and important factors include genetic predispositions, lifestyle choices, and overall diet. 

    Allergies

    Some people are allergic to eggs, and eating them regularly can cause allergic reactions. Egg allergies can cause mild symptoms such as hives or more serious reactions such as anaphylaxis. Individuals with egg allergies should avoid eggs completely.

    Digestive Issues

    For some people, eating eggs on a daily basis can cause digestive discomfort. This includes bloating, gas, and indigestion. Cooking methods (boiled, poached, scrambled, etc.) and the presence of other foods can influence egg tolerance.

    Saturated Fat Content

    Although eggs contain healthy fats, they also contain a moderate amount of saturated fat. Consuming large quantities of eggs, particularly when cooked with added fats, may contribute to an increase in saturated fat intake, which may have an impact on some people’s heart health.

    Risk of Contamination

    Consuming raw or undercooked eggs increases the risk of Salmonella contamination. To reduce this risk, eggs must be thoroughly cooked, particularly for vulnerable populations such as pregnant women, young children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems.

    Biotin Absorption

    Avidin, a protein found in raw egg whites, can bind to biotin (a B vitamin) and reduce its absorption. Cooking egg whites denatures avidin, which reduces its ability to interfere with biotin absorption.

    Nutrient Imbalance

    Relying heavily on eggs as a primary source of nutrients may result in dietary imbalance. While eggs are high in certain nutrients, a varied diet is necessary to obtain a wide range of vitamins and minerals.

    It’s important to note that many people can consume eggs as part of a healthy and balanced diet without experiencing any negative consequences. Individuals with specific dietary restrictions, allergies, or health conditions should seek personalised advice from a healthcare professional or registered dietitian.
