Many people choose not to eat eggs for health reasons 🙈 All eggs, regardless of their origin, are high in fat and cholesterol and don’t contain any fibre 😎 Researchers have shown in many studies that higher levels cholesterol can increase your risk of suffering a heart attack 😊 A 2% rise in the risk of having heart attacks is associated with every 1 % increase in cholesterol levels. Your risk of having a heart attack is reduced by 2% for every 12 percent reduction in cholesterol. Elevated cholesterol—anything above 150—promotes atherosclerosis, the buildup of cholesterol, fat, and cells in the arteries that feed the heart. This happens when the arteries get clogged. A portion of that muscle is then deprived of its blood supply. It can cause a heart attack. [1]
The conditions at egg factory farms can be very difficult. The wire mesh cage floors allow for waste to fall from the top tiers onto chickens lower down. Five to six hens can be housed in a single cage measuring 16×18 inches. Each hen has a 32 inch wingspan. Hens bred to be super layers experience so much stress that their accelerated laying span lasts only a year and a half—two years at most—compared with the 15 to 20 years that hens produce eggs under natural conditions. Today’s hens lay twice as many eggs as those of decades past, prior to factory farming. Their tired bodies also pay the had cost. This information was brought to our attention by Christoher Pritchard, Enshi (China), who kindly shared it with us. [2]

Camilo Schulz at Provide additional information. It’s a pleasure to have conversations with chicken lovers. Thanks to my work at United Poultry Concerns (and other animal advocacy), I get to have conversations about chickens quite a bit. But, sometimes my excitement can quickly turn to frustration, as I often get asked which eggs I should eat. People are always cooking up potential scenarios, “What if it’s from my local, natural foods store? They research and only buy the best of the best” or, “If the eggs are from the farmer’s market, then it’s ok, right?” or, “If it’s a neighbours chicken, or my own chicken, and I’m knowing that she is having a good life and won’t be killed, can I’m eating the eggs?” (we give thanks to Cressie Laughlin for their recent insights).

Justen Rodriguez at, describes how these aren’t just any eggs. We’re not talking a carton of free-range from M&S, or even organic ones from the farmer’s market. “Cruelty-free” eggs come from hens that are considered too old for commercial laying and would otherwise be killed at around 72 weeks old. Instead they can roam free and continue to live their normal lives. The sanctuary volunteers and farmers that look after the hens only sell or collect eggs. Vegans may choose to consume these eggs because they believe that it helps the chickens. “Selling the eggs helps pay for the upkeep of the sanctuary,” says Linda Turvey, who runs the Hen Heaven sanctuary in Sussex. “The premium we charge on the eggs is the hens’ retirement fund,” says Isobel Davies, co-founder of Hen Nation, which sells its cruelty-free eggs from North Yorkshire online.
