Did you know eggs can kill you? The other day I saw a short news video about a new study. It concluded egg yolks are almost as dangerous to your health as smoking. That surprised the hell out of me!
The two newscasters cited other, conflicting, studies, some of which concluded eggs were perfectly safe. In moderation, of course.
Those of you who follow food and nutrition news know this controversy has been raging for years.
So what are ordinary folks like you and me supposed to do? Even the experts, as competent as they may be, disagree with each other. With all the internet information available today, it can be a daunting task to figure out what’s good for you and what’s not.
As much as I rely on technology for my work and personal life, I sometimes think this is the age of too much information. And beyond that, I believe it’s caused many folks to give up relying on their own common sense and good judgement. To rely less on their inner guidance, their intuition, as we discussed in this blog post.
I don’t really believe there is anything such as too much information. But with the internet today there is so much of it available, even the experts can get confused. It’s not so much a matter of what’s right or wrong, but simply of differing perspectives, scientific studies, etc.
What’s worked for me is to simply review the information on the subjects I’m interested in (like nutrition), and then just make up my own mind, based on my intuition.
