Almost a quarter of all Australian adults live with a mild or moderate vitamin D deficiency. This increases in the winter to about one third of the population. Research at Deakin University shows that a serving of eggs contains 82% of the recommended dietary intake of vitamin D as well as other vitamins and nutrients. Eating at least one egg each day can help lessen the large drop in vitamin D levels that commonly occurs during months of lower sunlight.

Greenhouse Gas emissions on poultry farms are largely a result of feed production, with the manufacture, handling and transportation of feed equating to about 70% of the sector’s carbon footprint, according to UK researchers.
Research into a number of carbon-cutting solutions was carried out by a group of scientists for The Centre of Innovation and Excellence in Livestock.
Feed was a key focus area for reducing poultry emissions, there was evidence showing that getting the protein source wrong can lead to more infighting within the flock, which then impacts meat or egg production.
