DESCRIPTION: To help deflect criticism from the cholesterol content of their product, the egg industry touts the benefits of two phytonutrients, lutein and zeaxanthin, that have indeed been shown to be beneficial in protecting one's eyesight against vision threatening conditions such as cataracts and macular degeneration. But how do eggs stack up against plant-based sources? Have a question about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/videos/egg-... and I'll try to answer it! For more on the egg industry's misrepresentation of the facts, see my Avoiding cholesterol is a no brainer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/avoid...) and Egg cholesterol in the diet (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/egg-c...) videos on their scrambling of cholesterol science.
