The Truth about Your Eggs

Photo credit:Rodale News

In order to avoid putting unwanted things into your body during breakfast, it’s important that you pay attention to where your eggs come from and understand how to read egg labels and jargon. Arsenic, which is linked to various forms of cancer, could be in your eggs; it is added into feed to stimulate growth in hens.

You could also be consuming other harmful and unappetizing ingredients, like antibiotics and salmonella. Learn how to differentiate between labels like “cage-free,” “free-range,” “organic,” “natural,” “certified humane,” and more.

You might be surprised to find that some of these kinds of claims are not monitored. You may also be surprised at some of the ingredients added to feed, not to mention the less than humane treatment of the animals.
