Chicken egg: calories, carbs, fats and other nutrients

Chicken egg

Chicken eggs appeared in the human diet thousands of years ago, but their useful and harmful properties are still controversial among consumers and researchers. Some refuse to eat eggs because of the cholesterol they contain and the risk of worsening the cardiovascular system. Others ignore them because of salmonellosis. Others consider the store-bought product useless and buy eggs laid exclusively by domestic hens, giving preference to eggs with brown shells as more valuable.
