It turns out bacon and eggs can save your life…

Eggs benefit...


This week has already brought the brilliant news that bacon can prolong your life, and now it turns out eggs are the perfect accompaniment. Winning.

A new study reveals that eating just four eggs a week can reduce the risk of diabetes by more than a third.

But let’s be clear: We’re talking about hens’ eggs, not chocolatey Easter treats.

The research by the University of Eastern Finland found that men who eat four eggs a week have a 37% lower chance of contracting the disease than men who only eat one a week.

However, eating more than four eggs proved to have no discernible difference on combating risk. So don’t go stuffing yourselves for no reason.
