Eggs are a basic ingredient in Mexican gastronomy. They are an essential part of breakfast and they are easily included in other dishes. Eggs are not only delicious, but they also have great health benefits.

According to José Antonio Quintana, an academic from Mexico's National Autonomous University (UNAM), “Eggs are one of the most valuable and nutritious foods. It's a perfect product because it contains proteins, lipids, vitamins, minerals, and it's cheap.”

The researcher from the Faculty of Veterinary and Zoological Medicine is basing on a study published by U.S. researches; which consisted in feeding low-income children in Chihuahua and Sonora an egg every day. After a month, the children's IQ increased compared to those who didn't eat an egg every day.

And although there are myths that claim that eating eggs can affect your cholesterol levels, the teachers say “eating them is not harmful, unless you eat 5 to 6 eggs a day.”

It's highly recommended to add eggs to your daily diet, as it contains many nutrients and it also increases your IQ.
