Public health fraud: Why water fluoridation is one of the greatest crimes against humanity

Natural news

(Natural News) The mass medication of citizens via water fluoridation may be one of the greatest crimes against humanity taking place today — and it’s also one of the most under-reported scandals, too. Daring to speak out about the real facts on fluoride will get you stamped as a “crazy conspiracy theorist,” just like questioning vaccine safety or talking about the dangers of glyphosate will get you a fast-pass to being labeled “anti-science.”

The fraud of fluoride

First and foremost, fluoride is not an essential nutrient. Humans do not, and never will, need fluoride to be healthy. In fact, quite the opposite is true: Fluoride is a highly toxic substance. That’s why there is a poison warning on toothpaste and other fluoride-containing products.

As Fluoride Action Network explains,  fluoride has historically been used as a pesticide — and that’s why consuming too much fluoride in one sitting can lead to serious poisoning, and even death. But the dangers of fluoride don’t end with the acute. Long-term, there are many other negative side effects to be had.

Dental fluorosis and skeletal fluorosis are the two most obvious forms of harm. Experts have noted that by the time fluoride has been deposited in bone tissue, it is very likely that other forms of less detectable damage have taken place. For example, studies have shown chronic fluoride consumption can lead to arthritic pain and an increased risk of fractures — even before skeletal fluorosis has set in.

There are also substantial concerns about the effects lifetime fluoride consumption may have on the brain and thyroid. Multiple studies have shown that fluoride consumption can cause brain damage and lower IQ in children.

Water fluoridation should be a crime

Roughly 20 years ago, a union representing scientists and toxicologists from the EPA reportedly stated,”[W]e hold that water fluoridation is an unreasonable risk.”

The union has, in the past, testified that water fluoridation has been linked to “cancer, genetic damage, neurological impairment and bone pathology.”

A 2012 tudy piloted by Harvard Medical School found that water fluoridation was linked to lower IQs and adversely effected cognitive development in children.

Senior study author Philippe Grandjean commented on the findings. “Fluoride seems to fit in with lead, mercury, and other poisons that cause chemical brain drain [emphasis added]. The effect of each toxicant may seem small, but the combined damage on a population scale can be serious, especially because the brain power of the next generation is crucial to all of us,” he stated.

In 2015, Grandjean and his team published follow-up research, which examined the effects of consistent lifetime water fluoridation in first grade children. And again, the findings confirmed their suspicions about the neurotoxicity of fluoride. The researchers concluded again that their data “supports the notion that fluoride in drinking water may produce developmental neurotoxicity.”

The evidence of harm is clear — yet nothing is being done to roll back water fluoridation efforts. The danger is real folks; water fluoridation is nothing more than a scheme to dumb down the masses and make people sick. In reality, water fluoridation is a crime; it’s not just a form of mass medication, but rather, mass poisoning. There is no reason for this toxic substance to be added to public water supplies.

Basic mechanical skills every survivalist should have

Natural News
1 July 2018
Frances Bloomfield

(Natural News) Survival situations aren’t always easy nor are they always kind. One day, you could be cruising down the highway, blasting your favorite Kansas or Lee Greenwood tracks. The next, you could be wasting a few good hours trying and failing to start your car. In situations like these, it pays to be knowledgeable in basic auto repairs. These and other mechanical skills are musts for your personal survival skill set — find out which ones you’ll need down below. (h/t to DoomsdayMoose.com.)

  • How to do simple auto maintenance and repairs: The great thing about the modern day is that you can just pay someone to fix your car when it breaks down. But when you’re in a survival situation, you’re pretty much on your own. That’s why you need to be comfortable and capable of performing the following repairs to your car when the need arises:
    • Changing a flat tire
    • Changing oil
    • Checking and replacing spark plugs and wires
    • Checking and replacing your car battery an alternator
    • Replacing the air and oil filter
    • Replacing brake pads
    • Replacing distributor cap and rotor
    • Rotating tires
  • Don’t forget your tools: Of course, you can’t do all of these with your own bare hands. You’ll need to keep a few tools with you in order to carry out these maintenance and repair jobs. Make it a point to always keep the following tools in your car:
    • Air compressor
    • Adjustable wrench
    • Electrical tape
    • Gas tank patch
    • Jack
    • Jumper cables
    • Pliers
    • Seatbelt cutter
    • Screwdriver set
    • Socket and ratchet set
    • Tire plug kit
    • Torque wrench
  • How to start a fire without a lighter: Lighter fluid runs out, but the need to stay warm never will. The good thing is that you can start a fire using almost anything. The important thing is that you keep the wind direction and your surrounding area in mind. The last thing you want is to start a forest fire by accident. That being said, here are some everyday items you can use to stay toasty:
    • A battery and gum wrapper: Cut or tear a long narrow strip of gum wrapper and place each end onto the positive and negative terminal buttons.
    • A car battery: The idea here is similar to the one above. Only instead of gum wrapper, you can use steel wool, a knife, or anything conductive.
    • A pair of eyeglasses: Far-sighted specs and a sunny day are best for this. Spit on the lens and angle them between the sun and a pile of kindling, focusing the sun’s rays through the lens. This should result in the formation of a single heat point in your kindling. A bottle of water can work in the same way.
    • Sticks: You’ll need two straight, very dry sticks and a bundle of kindling. Sharpen one stick and create an indention in the other one for the sharpened stick to rest into. Twirl the sharpened stick into the hole of the other stick to create friction that ignites the kindling. (Related: How to build a fire in a winter survival situation.)
  • How to signal for help: Nobody wants to be in a situation that they can’t get out of on their own. But the fact is that it can happen to anyone at anytime. Should it ever happen to you, the least you’ll want to do is be able to catch the attention of anyone who’ll help. There are various ways you can do this, and they are:
    • Using fire: This is a very effective method of signaling for help. What you’ll want to do is create three signal fires in a very visible place and arrange them in the shape of a triangle. Make sure that your fires don’t get too big though. Otherwise, you’ll have a difficult time putting them out.
    • Using flags: For this, you’ll either want brightly colored or highly reflective garments. Lash your makeshift flag to a tent pole then a tree to make a free-standing signal flag. You can lay it out on the ground as well if you can find a large, clear area to place it in.
    • Using flagging tape and markers: Simple and easy to use, bright pink or blue flagging tapes with messages of help will catch anyone’s eye.
    • Using whistles: This is especially helpful if you’re stuck in a relatively hidden place. If help can’t see you, they can at least hear you.

Luck favors the prepared. So stack the odds in your favor by learning all of these skills and adding them to your arsenal.

New Study Finds Climate Change Alarmists Are LESS Eco-Friendly Than Skeptics

9 May 2018

Skeptics more likely to recycle & use public transport than hypocrite leftists

A new study has once again exposed how leftists value virtue signaling over action by revealing that people who express the most alarm about climate change are less likely to be eco-friendly than global warming skeptics.

The study, published in the April edition of the Journal of Environmental Psychology, separated 600 participants into three groups based on their level of concern about climate change: “highly concerned,” “cautiously worried,” and “skeptical.”

Cornell and the University of Michigan researchers “found that those “highly concerned” about climate change were less likely to engage in recycling and other eco-friendly behaviors than global-warming skeptics,” reports the Washington Times.

While those who expressed high concern about global warming were the most vocal cheerleaders of government intervention, they were least likely to report their own individual actions.

On the other hand, climate change skeptics who rail against taxation and other onerous government programs were more likely to engage in individual eco-friendly activities such as recycling and conserving fossil fuels by using public transport.

“Sorry, I didn’t have time to recycle—I was busy watching a documentary about the crumbling Antarctic ice shelf,” jokes blogger Tom Jacobs.

“Regarding climate change skeptics, remember that conservatism prizes individual action over collective efforts. So while they may assert disbelief in order to stave off coercive (in their view) actions by the government, many could take pride in doing what they can do on a personal basis,” he adds.

The study speaks to stereotypes about celebrities, which tend to be true, about them living lavish lifestyles, flying private and enjoying luxury yachts while lecturing the rest of us about how we need to restrict our energy consumption.

The results also emphasize how leftists are predominantly concerned with virtue signaling and that when it comes to actually living the lifestyle they preach, they’re complete hypocrites.

One finds a similar situation when it comes to giving to charity.

A 2014 study by the Philanthropy Chronicle found that conservatives in red states were more generous compared to wealthy liberals.

“Less well-off families from red states donate a relatively higher – and growing – proportion of their money to charity, while those at the top have been giving a smaller share as their income has increased,” the study found.

Underscoring how conservatives believe in personal responsibility, 17 of the most generous states voted Republican in 2012, while 15 of the 17 least generous ones voted Democrat.

Overall, both studies confirm that while leftists are the loudest when it comes to signaling their virtue and humanitarianism, when it actually comes to following through, conservatives consistently come out on top.

5G Wireless: A Ridiculous Front for Global Control

No More Fake News
4 April 2018
Jon Rappoport

One wireless control grid to rule them all

First, two quotes to give a bit of background.

5G speed, for people who must download a whole season of their favorite show in two seconds:

“It’s the next (fifth) generation of cellular technology which promises to greatly enhance the speed, coverage and responsiveness of wireless networks. How fast are we talking about? Think 10 to 100 times speedier than your typical cellular connection, and even faster than anything you can get with a physical fiber-optic cable going into your house. (You’ll be able to download a season’s worth of ‘Stranger Things’ in seconds.)” [CNET.com]

Lunatic 5G installation of small transmitters packed close together every few hundred feet:

“The next big thing in cellular technology, 5G, will bring lightning-fast wireless Internet — and thousands of antenna-topped poles to many neighborhoods where cell towers have long been banned.”

“Wireless companies are asking Congress and state lawmakers to make it easier to install the poles by preempting local zoning laws that often restrict them, particularly near homes. The lobbying efforts have alarmed local officials across the country. They say they need to ensure that their communities do not end up with unsightly poles cluttering sidewalks, roadsides and the edges of front yards.”

“They also are hearing from residents worried about possible long-term health risks. Until now, much of the cell equipment that emits radio-frequency energy has been housed on large towers typically kept hundreds of feet from homes [also harmful to health]. The new ‘small cell’ technology uses far more antennas and transmitters that are smaller and lower-powered, but clustered closer together and lower to the ground.” [The Washington Post]

I keep hammering on this 5G issue, because it contains the blueprint of a future only elite madmen want.

For the rest of us, it’s a catastrophe in the making.

I’ve covered the extreme health dangers of 5G in another article. Here, I want to flesh out the hidden agenda.

A few decades ago, a movement was started to create an interconnected power grid for the whole planet. We were told this would be the only way to avoid wasting huge amounts of electricity and, voila, bring all nations and all people into a modern 21st century.

But now, it’s a different story, a classic bait and switch. The bait was the promise of One Grid for all. The switch is what 5G will bring us:

100 billion or more NEW devices online, all connected to the Internet and the Cloud. What could be more wasteful? What could be more ridiculous? This is the opposite of sane energy use.

Who really cares whether his 5G-connected refrigerator keeps track of the food items inside it and orders new items when the supply dwindles? Who has to have a 5G driverless car that takes him to work? Who must have a 5G stove that senses what is being cooked and sets the temperature for four minutes? Who lives and who dies if a washing machine doesn’t measure how much soap is stored inside and doesn’t order new soap? Who is demanding a hundred devices in his home that spy on him and record his actions?

With 5G, the ultimate goal is: every device in every home that uses energy will be “its own computer,” and the planetary grid will connect ALL these devices to a monitoring and regulating Energy Authority.

As Patrick Wood details in his classic, Technocracy Rising, that worldwide Energy Authority was the dream of the men who launched the Technocracy movement, in America, in the 1930s.

They set out the key requirements—which weren’t technically possible then, but are quite doable now: continuous real-time measuring of both energy production and energy use from one end of the planet to the other…

So that both energy production and energy consumption could be controlled. “For the good of all,” of course.

5G is the technology for making this happen.

“We’re promising a stunning long-range future of ‘automatic homes’, where everything is done for you. But really, that’s the cover story. Ultimately, we want to be able to measure every unit of energy used by every device in every home—and through AI, regulate how much energy we will let every individual consume, moment to moment. We control energy. We are the energy masters. If you want to run and operate and dominate the world, you control its energy.”

Terms and projects like smart grid, smart meters, sustainability, Agenda 21, smart cities, climate change—all this is Technocratic planning and justification for Rule through Energy.

The beginning of an actual rational plan for energy would start this way: DUMP 5G. Dump the whole plan of installing small transmitter-cells on buildings and homes and trees and lampposts and fences all over the planet. Forget it. Don’t bring 100 billion new devices online. Aside from the extreme health dangers, it’s ridiculously expensive. It’s on the order of saying we need thousand-foot robots standing on sidewalks washing the windows of office buildings.

If some movie star wants to install 30 generators on his property and have engineers build him an automatic home, where he can sit back, flip a switch, and have three androids carry him into his bathtub and wash him and dry him, fine. But planning a smart city? Who voted for that? Who gave informed consent? Nobody.

A global Energy Authority, of course, is going to decide that a small African country needs to be given much more energy, while Germany or France or the US will have to sacrifice energy for the cause of social justice. But this is yet another con, because you won’t see government cleaning up the contaminated water supplies of that small African country, or installing modern sanitation, or curtailing the forced movement of populations into poverty-stricken cities, or reclaiming vast farm land stolen by mega-corporations and giving that land back to local farmers.

The whole hidden purpose of an Energy Authority is control.

And because the Authority is Globalist and Technocratic, it aims to lower energy use in industrial nations and help wreck their economies, making it much easier to move in and take over those countries.

Having said all this, there are gaps in our knowledge about 5G. For example, who in his right mind would propose a wireless system that relies on many, many, many cells/transmitters placed closely to each other, all over the world?

This system would be far more vulnerable to physical disruption than the present 4G.

You can find many articles that claim the US military must have 5G for their most advanced planes—and for their developing AI-controlled weapons. How does that work? Where will all the transmitter/cells be placed on the ground and in the air?? Something is missing here. Is there another version of 5G we’re not being told about? Is geoengineering of the atmosphere the means for tuning up space so 5G signals can be passed along without cells/transmitters?

Part of the US obsession to bring 5G online quickly stems from competition with China, which at the moment is in the lead on developing and exporting the technology. “If China has it, we have to have it sooner and better.” This attitude sidesteps the issue of why we must have 5G in the first place.

And now there are reports that the US government is considering a plan to build the whole 5G network itself—rather than leaving the job to corporations. Of course, a few favored companies (like Google) would be chosen by the government in a non-bid situation to provide VERY significant help. If such a plan were to launch, we would have a very tight club at the top of the communications and energy pyramid. And that club would maximize 5G to expand already-saturated surveillance of populations.

Wouldn’t you—if you had nothing better to do than control the world?

Study: Getting Off Facebook For Just 5 Days Reduces Stress Levels

Infowars
Paul Joseph Watson

Avoiding social media decreases cortisol

A new study has found that taking a break from Facebook for just five days reduces the level of the stress hormone cortisol.

Researchers in Australia asked 138 participants to give up Facebook for five days or continue to use Facebook as normal. General well-being and salivary cortisol were measured before and after the test period.

“Relative to those in the Facebook Normal condition, those in the No Facebook condition experienced lower levels of cortisol” after avoiding Facebook, according to the study.

“Our results suggest that the typical Facebook user may occasionally find the large amount of social information available taxing, and Facebook vacations could ameliorate this stress—at least in the short-term,” the authors state.

As I document in the video below, even top Facebook executives now admit that social media is incredibly harmful and is literally “programming” its users.

Social media works by rewarding the brain’s dopamine centers similar to smoking, drinking alcohol and gambling, meaning entire generations of young people are being turned into addicts.

Social media also causes depression because users see their friend’s ‘highlights reel’ and then judge their own lives as being boring in comparison.

Other research suggests that social media use is shortening attention spans and causing the infantilization of people’s brains.

Millennials’ coping mechanisms for dealing with stress have become so eroded that they turn to social media and narcissism in an attempt to ameliorate tension.

This only results in constant distraction and disruption, making concentration more difficult and harming long term memory.

 

How to store meat long-term when living off-grid

Natural News
29 March 2018
Zoey Sky

(Natural News) Preppers know that there are several methods that can be used to prepare meat for long-term storage. However, canning is one of the simplest ways to store meat when SHTF because it ensures that the food has a long shelf life.

Canning meat when you’re off-grid is similar to when you’re canning meat the modern way. If you have access to solar power, canning meat will be as easy as doing it in a modern kitchen. (h/t to BioPrepper.com)

Pressure canning is the recommended method of canning meat and low-acid vegetables to prevent a fatal kind of food poisoning called botulism. Botulism affects the central nervous system and causes facial and/or body paralysis. It is caused by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum.

Canning meat off-grid and without a stove

To can meat off-grid, you will need some glass jars, lids, and rings. Consider getting some reusable lids, such as the Tattler brand, because even if they’re pricier, they’re worth every penny.

Take note that reusable lids have several differences compared to standard single-use lids. Reusable lids must be unscrewed a quarter of a turn in order so the hot air can escape while the contents are processing. Once the jars of food are processed, remove them from the canner. Tighten the rings again so the rubber seals properly as the food cools.

Before reusing your jars, clean them thoroughly and check for any flaws. Chipped jars can’t be reused for wet goods or other things that don’t require seals.

A pressure canner can also be used as a water bath canner for fruits and veggies that aren’t low acid. (Related: Curing and preserving meat in the wild: 5 different techniques.)

To can meat without a stove, you can make do with an old-fashioned wood-burning cook stove. Just remember that if you lose power, using a wood-burning stove can turn up the heat in your home during summer.

You can even try pressure canning over an open fire. Just make sure that you have a lot of wood since the fire has to be hot enough to sustain the pressure inside of a canner. If the water stops boiling, the meat will be compromised because it has to stay under pressure – which may vary depending on the size of the jars – to kill the C. botulinum bacteria.

You can build your own outdoor grill with some cinder blocks. Surround the canning area on three sides with cinder blocks, then place a metal grate or gridiron on top of two blocks so the canner is close to the fire. To start canning, get the fire hot so your canner will pressurize faster.

Since a canner can only hold a certain number of jars, get enough wood so the fire stays hot enough. Watch the fire closely: It needs to be hot enough to bring the pot to pressure, but it can’t get too hot that it blows up. When sterilizing jars outdoors, put a lid over the pot so ashes don’t get in the water.

Even if you don’t have electricity, you can use your survival skills to can meat over a wood-burning stove or an open fire.

Tips for storing canned meat

Once you’ve canned meat for your food supply, follow the tips below to store them properly:

  • Check if each jar is sealed tightly before you store them – Metal lids shouldn’t move up or down when you press on it. If the lids move, use the food immediately or refrigerate it. For Tattler reusable lids, remove the metal screw band and pull on the lid with your fingers. Sealed lids will remain in place. Those not sealed properly will pull off.
  • Freshly processed jars must be cooled thoroughly – Remove screw bands and clean the jars and screw bands using warm soapy water, then dry the jars and bands.
  • Label each jar properly – Write the date and contents on jar lids or on a label.
  • Store jars in a cool, dark, and dry place – Store canned foods in a single layer. While you can save space by stacking jars, it’s not worth risking them since they may fall and break.

Wind Energy Fraud: War On The High Plains

In this exclusive report, Infowars reporter Millie Weaver exposes the explicit fraud, deception, and outright criminality behind wind energy and how it may be used to run rural communities off their properties as part of a major land grab effort in concert with Agenda 21. Millie Weaver starts off asking people who live and work in Kansas City, KS what they know about green energy and industrial wind farms. Not surprising, city people virtue signal their liberal support for industrial wind energy dogmatizing it as a viable solution to the alleged problem of “climate change” without much thought. However, when asked how much energy wind farms produce, what they know about impacts on birds, bats, the environment and human health, most city people appear to be clueless. Weaver then goes to a small town where a local florist has noticed a significant increase in funerals for people who live outside town in close proximity to the wind farm. Weaver then journeys to El Paso County Colorado giving us an insiders view of the fraudulent and deceptive nature of big wind energy corporations by attending and speaking at a local County Commissioner’s hearing regarding health concerns about a local wind farm. Rural people who have been impacted by the wind farm speak out about having to abandon their homes and health effects they have experienced in a plea for help. World renowned acoustician Robert Rand presents prima facia evidence that the wind farm is in perpetual violation of state noise nuisance laws. He presents data which shows the wind farm is operating at noise levels know to cause sleep deprivation, stress, and other health impacts reported by those living in close proximity to it. Millie Weaver discusses medical opinions of doctors who examined data collected as part of a scientific medical study which investigated the serious health impacts of residents living near the wind farm. At the hearing, a wind energy advocate “Dr”, who has been giving medical opinions and medical advice in support of the wind energy project while downplaying people’s health concerns, is exposed as not being an actual “doctor”, rather, being nothing more than a person with a “PhD” in Philosophy. County Commissioners and State legislators now wrestle with the legal conundrum of needing to enforce the law to protect the health and well being of rural residents, to prevent lawlessness and the appearance of giving unequal protection under the law, while facing threats from wind energy tycoons of billion dollar lawsuits if the wind farm is shut down. After the hearing, Weaver takes us within the wind farm footprint only to find that the wind turbines have temporarily been turned off. She interviews several residents neighboring the wind farm who discuss the health impacts they and others have experienced since the wind farm began operation in late 2015. People complain about not only getting sick from the wind turbines, such as regular headaches, nausea, and dizziness, but that they’ve had to get rid of their cattle, that their chickens have stopped laying eggs, and that many of their animals have died. We also learn that some people having been having seizures and cardiovascular problems. Many people have left the area and many others discuss being in the process of selling or abandoning their properties just to get away from the wind farm. Finally, Weaver interviews Larry Mott of GES Tech Group, Inc, an engineer who has closely monitored the wind farm. HE explains how industrial wind turbines are extremely inefficient at producing usable energy and that they are only good at producing bogus carbon credits. He discusses the corruption that allowed the wind farm to be constructed despite massive public outcry by residents who are now forced to live near it. He also discusses how billions-of-dollars in government subsidies are the only real source of profit from wind energy and exposes how wind energy is a major tax fraud Ponzi scheme. As a bonus, Weaver interviews Lord Christopher Monckton who delves into the serious harm wind farms have on large raptors, rare birds, and the uphill battle Donald Trump has faced fighting wind energy.

Eggs are brain food: Study shows eggs improve infant brain development

Image: Eggs are brain food: Study shows eggs improve infant brain development

(Natural News) It turns out, eggs aren’t just good for you, it can also be good for babies too, according to researchers from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis. In the study, they discovered that introducing eggs to newborn children starting at six months resulted in higher blood centralizations of choline and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), as well as other biomarkers in choline pathways.

The study, Eggs Early in Complementary Feeding Increase Choline Pathway Biomarkers and DHA: A Randomized Controlled Trial in Ecuador, was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Lead author Lora Iannotti of Brown School explained: “Eggs have been consumed throughout human history, but the full potential of this nutritionally complete food has yet to be recognized in many resource-poor settings around the world.”

Choline is a known essential nutrient. It functions in a variety of roles, ranging from cell structure to learning, and has been shown to help fend off liver disease, atherosclerosis, and potential neurological disorders. However, most people do not even meet the required intake of choline, despite its importance in the human body. Egg yolks are known to be the primary source of choline. DHA, on the other hand, is an omega-3 fatty acid that has been correlated with healthy aging and infant development, particularly with immune and neuronal functions. A deficiency in DHA later in life can increase the risk of coronary disease and cognitive degeneration. Aside from eggs, other sources of DHA are fish and fish oil products.

“Like milk or seeds, eggs are designed to support the early growth and development of an organism and are, therefore, dense in nutrient content,” according to Iannotti. “Eggs provide essential fatty acids, proteins, choline, vitamins A and B12, selenium and other critical nutrients at levels above or comparable to those found in other animal food products, but they are relatively more affordable.”

According to the study, eggs provide nutrients in a “food matrix” which enhances its absorption and digestion.

In 2015, a randomized, controlled trial was made by the team in Ecuador in 2015. Children aged six to nine months were randomly assigned to be fed with one egg every day for half a year. A control group was also selected and were not provided with eggs.

Earlier papers from the study demonstrated that early introduction of eggs in the diet enhanced linear growth and reduced instances of stunted growth among babies who were given eggs starting at six months.

Other benefits of eating eggs

Aside from choline, eggs are one of the most nutritious foods available. A single hard-boiled egg contains vitamins A, B2, B5, and B12, as well as folate, phosphorus, and selenium. These are also known to raise High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL), the “good” cholesterol that decreases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and other health problems. Studies have also shown that adequate consumption of eggs can prevent the likelihood of cataracts and macular degeneration, thanks to the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin found in egg yolks.

Eggs are also high in animal protein and contain essential amino acids that our bodies need. This is particularly true for free-range eggs, which contain a significantly higher amount of omega-3 fatty acids. These reduce the level of triglycerides in the body, which is a known risk factor for heart disease. (Related: Why Organic Eggs are a Nutritious Superfood.)
