cooking and eatingAustralian scientists say that people who eat one or more eggs a day are more likely to develop diabetes. According to them, it’s not so important that you hard-boil or boil eggs or turn them into scrambled eggs, the risks are 60 percent higher anyway.
This conclusion is from a long-term study (between 1991 and 2009) of 8,545 Chinese adults. This shows that those who eat one or more eggs a day have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes: by up to 60 percent. The results were published in the British Journal of Nutrition. To this end, researchers from the University of South Australia collaborated with China Medical University and Qatar University.
However, according to epidemiologist and public health expert Ming Li, more research is needed to know the exact relationship between eating eggs and diabetes.
The growth in the number of people with type 2 diabetes is a problem in many countries, in the Netherlands as well as in China, where more than 11 percent of the population suffers from the disease of affluence. Worldwide, this percentage is 8.5 percent, and in our country it is more than 7 percent. It’s such a big problem that costs make up about ten percent of total healthcare expenditures worldwide: $760 billion, or €642 billion.
How many eggs do we eat in…
Europe: 33.65 grams per day
US: 28.43 grams per day
Asia: 20.56 grams per day
Oceania (including Australia): 18.20 grams per day
Africa: 5.93 grams per day
Globally: 21.45 grams per day
According to public health expert Ming Li, diabetes is a growing problem, especially as the Chinese diet is changing. The doctor says that the way you eat is a known factor in the development of the disease. “So it’s important to know what dietary habits can affect diabetes,” he told a science news site. informed daily. “Over the past few decades, China has gone through a major dietary change as people started eating traditional meals less grains and vegetables and more processed foods, including more snacks, meat, and high-calorie foods.”
At the same time, the consumption of eggs increased significantly. The number of eggs consumed during the study period – nearly twenty years – doubled, according to the doctor. Although the relationship between eating eggs and diabetes has often been debated, this study shows that eating eggs for a long time and in abundance increases blood sugar levels. What we found is that eating more than 38 grams of eggs per day increases the risk of diabetes in Chinese adults by 25 percent. In addition, we see that people who regularly eat a lot of eggs – more than 50 grams, or one egg per day – appear to have a 60 percent increased risk.” Striking: This appears to hold true for women more than men.
The Nutrition Center recommends limiting eggs to a few times a week. According to the site, eating 2-3 eggs per week is part of a healthy diet. According to the Netherlands Knowledge Institute, eggs are a supplement to fish, legumes, or meat. You can also replace meat with eggs. Vegetarians can eat 3-4 eggs per week.
