What is the best type of egg for your health?

    If you’re getting eggs, you should make an effort to get free range eggs, preferably from a local farmer. A study by Mother Earth News found free range eggs to have 1/3 less cholesterol, 1/4 less saturated fat, 2/3 more vitamin A, 2 times more omega 3 fatty acids, 3 times more vitamin E, and 7 times more beta carotene. There have been several other studies that have also found this to be true as well. So the next time you’re making an omelette, go free range!

    In addition to being free-range, eggs should also be organic.  The main difference between free-range and organic is simply that organic eggs are produced by chickens that are fed organic diets, which isn’t always the case when it comes to free-range eggs.  Organic eggs have higher levels of Vitamen B and Folic Acid, and usually have higher levels of Omega-3.  In addition to this, non-organic eggs contain antibiotics that were fed to the chickens.  When a human consumes these antibiotics, they may become resistant to the antibiotics which can lead to viruses.
