A study published online in the British journal Heart has revealed why Nigerians should eat an egg per day.

Egg
Eating an egg each day appears to be linked to a lower risk of heart disease among middle-aged Chinese, according to a study published online in the British journal Heart.
The study, authored by a group of Chinese scientists, analyzed data from over half a million Chinese aged 30 to 79 from 10 diverse survey sites in China during the period from 2004 to 2008, and have since been followed up upon to determine their morbidity and mortality rates.
 
“Our findings contribute scientific evidence to the dietary guidelines with regard to egg consumption for the healthy Chinese adult,” said the scientists.
The study linked eating an egg a day with lowering the risk of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) by 11 per cent, ischemic heart disease by 12 per cent, major coronary events by 14 per cent, hemorrhagic stroke by 26 per cent as well as ischemic stroke by 10 per cent.
Daily consumers of eggs also have an 18 percent lower risk of CVD death and a 28 per cent lower risk of hemorrhagic stroke death compared to non-consumers, it showed.
Eggs are a prominent source of dietary cholesterol, causing the concern that eating too many may be unhealthy.
But they also contain high-quality protein, many vitamins and bioactive components. In recent years, more scientific evidence has emerged for the positive impact eggs have on human health.
Previous studies focusing on a link between eating eggs and heart disease mostly had smaller sample sizes, fewer CVD events and were unable to obtain accurate estimates on stroke subtypes, said the Chinese scientists.

$2 Million Worth Of Cocaine Found Washed Up On New Zealand Beach

Published

on

 

Bethells Beach is a place unlike many others on the planet. The popular, isolated hotspot is a favorite among New Zealand’s visitors, and even used the area for scenes in her “Out of the Woods” music video. There isn’t any riff-raff known in the area and the serenity is what makes Bethells Beach so appealing, so you can only imagine a beachgoer’s surprise when they found 19 thick packages of cocaine washed ashore.

 

According to CNN, police don’t believe that any more bundles will make their way onto the beach, but they didn’t count it out. Their main concern is trying to figure out where the nearly $2 million worth of drugs had come from and they hope the peculiar prints on the packaging will help them. 

 

 

There have been quite a few drug busts within the last few months, albeit not any of them came from stumbling upon cocaine-wrapped packages. German customs officials just broke a  worth of cocaine. A man in Spain was nabbed for attempting to hide  in his toupée, and over in Baltimore, $10 million by officials at a port.

Osama bin Laden’s Terrorist Son Hamza ‘Dies Aged 30’

Published

on

Hamza bin Laden, the son of and possible successor to terror kingpin Osama bin Laden, is dead.

A new US intelligence report gathered that the al Qaeda leader’s son had died, but the report did not discuss details of where or when the younger bin Laden died or whether the US played a role in his demise, and President Trump declined comment at the White House.

“I don’t want to comment on it. I don’t want to comment on that,” Trump said.

Hamza bin Laden’s last known public statement, released by al Qaeda in 2018, included threats against Saudi Arabia and called on the people of the Arabian peninsula to revolt against their rulers.

Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden in 2011 during a raid on his hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan.  Hamza was not found at the compound, but letters seized from the compound suggested the top 9/11 plotter wanted his son to join him in Abbottabad so he could groom him as a leader.

“Hamza is being prepared for a leadership role in the organization his father founded” and was “likely to be perceived favorably by the jihadi rank-and-file. With the Islamic State’s ‘caliphate’ apparently on the verge of collapse, Hamza is now the figure best placed to reunify the global jihadi movement,” counterterror expert and former FBI agent Ali Soufan said in 2017.
