Egg Production

Today’s interesting blog talks about why eggs should be part of your diet. There is no doubt they should be part of a staple diet.

Egg-laying chickens lay up to one egg per day at their peak. But how do chickens lay eggs? And how often do chickens lay eggs? The process takes 24 to 26 hours per egg. Well, that isn’t important, as eggs are sold in shops and over the counter everywhere.


“Eliminating eggs from the diet can have several notable effects on the body. Firstly, it can lead to nutrient deficiencies, as eggs are a rich source of protein, essential amino acids, vitamins (such as B12, D, and choline), and minerals (such as selenium and phosphorus).


Selenium is an essential trace mineral that plays an important role in human health. It is naturally present in foods such as Brazil nuts, seafood, eggs, meat, and whole grains but it can also be obtained through dietary supplements.


Selenium is an essential component of various enzymes and proteins, called selenoproteins, that help to make DNA and protect against cell damage and infections; these proteins are also involved in reproduction and the metabolism of thyroid hormones.


Phosphorus is needed for the growth, maintenance, and repair of all tissues and cells, and for the production of the genetic building blocks, DNA and RNA. Phosphorus is also needed to help balance and use other vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D, iodine, magnesium, and zinc.


Make sure you get your daily eggs either soft or hard boiled scrambled, poached, or sunny side up, or in an omelet, quiche, or in another of the dishes where eggs are used.


Have a great day!

Prof. Carl Boniface
