How Long Have #Eggs Been in Our #Diet?

eggsWe’ve eaten eggs in our diet for over 50,000 years. The longer answer delves into the history of how many birds have reached extinction because of our appetite for large bird eggs. The circumstantial evidence that led researchers to suspect humans for the expiration of such large bird species is because of burnt eggshell remains, found by scientists. For what it’s worth, an omelet is made with about three eggs. Eggs give us protein and cholesterol that is used by the body to create vitally important hormones. Cavemen knew what they were doing when eating eggs in the same way the new science has shown it’s healthy to eat more whole eggs. Cavemen didn’t have blood tests of HDLs, LDLs, cholesterol and other markers of health. No wonder eggs continue to be a crowd-pleaser.
