Eating This Feeds Bacteria That Can Poke Holes Through Your Gut

Story at-a-glance
~
Azithromycin (Zithromax) is a macrolide antibiotic used in the treatment of bronchitis, pneumonia, ear infections, and sexually transmitted diseases. It’s known for having unpleasant side effects such as skin rashes, itching, allergic or anaphylactic reactions, and severe, watery diarrhea.
~
But it’s also associated with more severe side effects, such as myopathy―muscle and tendon pain, weakness and cramping―when taken in combination with statins. And previous research has shown that use of any type of antibiotic increases the risk of breast cancer in women.
~
~ Recent research found that the macrolide antibiotic Azithromycin increases your chances of dying from a cardiovascular event by 250 percent within the first five days of usage, compared to taking amoxicillin. Those who already have heart problems are at an even greater risk of dying from the drug, which parallels Vioxx that had killed 60,000 people by the time it was removed from the market in 2004.
~
~ Antibiotics are indiscriminate bactericides, meaning they kill ALL bacteria, both good and bad, and many of the immediate and long-term side effects are related to this fact, as disrupting your gut flora has a detrimental effect on your overall immune system.
~
~ The greatest danger posed by antibiotics does not come from prescribed courses of antibiotics, but rather from the food you eat. The prevalence of antibiotics found in both conventionally-grown meats and vegetables has the potential to throw off, or contribute to intestinal imbalance and subsequent immune system dysfunction.
~
~ It’s estimated that the non-therapeutic use of antibiotics in livestock accounts for 70 percent of the total antibiotic use in the US, and when all agricultural uses are considered, the share could be as high as 84 percent.
~
~ On December 22, 2011, the US FDA posted a notice in the Federal Register that it was effectively reneging on its plan to reduce the use of antibiotics in agricultural animal feed. Instead, the agency issued voluntary guidelines in April of this year, suggesting that livestock should only be treated with antibiotics to cure illness, not to enable growth.

What’s the Big Deal with Egg Yolks Anyway?

~
Egg yolks actually contain all the healthy, fatty acids that are contained within the egg. It is a nucleus of wholesome goodness that supplied our ancestors with their sustenance since before they were upright. When you strip away the egg yolk and eat only the white, you’re completely missing out on the benefits of those fatty acids like the Omega-3 fats.
~
Egg yolks also contain over 80% of the overall vitamins and minerals that can be found within the egg as a whole
. The facts point to the conclusion that the egg should be consumed without division. In the process of eliminating the cholesterol intake by shedding the egg yolks, you’re losing the majority of the vitamins and minerals such as: Iron, Potassium, Folate, Selenium, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin B, Vitamin D, Biotin, and Choline.
~
There is a line dividing many people about whether egg yolks are safe to eat, mainly due to the issues with cholesterol. The fact remains that the bulk of the nutrition in an egg comes from the yolk (including 1/5 of the total protein). Logic would dictate that if you are a person who has an issue with cholesterol, you shouldn’t eat eggs on a constant basis, but when you do you should eat the whole thing.
~
The issue of cholesterol is completely negligible and recent studies such as those performed by the University of Science have proven that other nutrients within the egg yolks can actually help the body manage the cholesterol intake. Vitamin B (particularly Riboflavin) has been known to aid in lowering cholesterol levels and the Lecithin within the egg prevents much of the cholesterol from even being absorbed within your digestive tract. There have also been some preliminary research done into the antioxidant Lutien which may reduce inflammation in the body, which is a much more deadly problem in the heart disease battle.”
