INDIA - Eggs are good for you and their consumption should be encouraged by government.

A reporter on The Hindu reminds consumers eggs are affordable and a nutrient-rich contributor to a healthy diet. They contain high-quality proteins as well as many vitamins and minerals required for good health.

Dr Balaswamy, convener of National Egg and Chicken Promotion Council explained that with a biological value of 93.7 per cent, eggs are the best proteins money can buy. There is no evidence to support the theory that eggs cause heart problems.

He called on authorities to encourage egg consumption and exhorted the State government to provide eggs during midday meals programme.

Dr Balaswamy was speaking at the launch of speciality eggs by Suguna in Hyderabad on Tuesday.
