Being a Kenyan living in the US, I like to keep myself posted with the happenings back home. Recently there was this craze going on about quail meat and quail eggs.
Apparently eating 4 quail eggs a day kept just about every disease away, and if you were sick there were a certain number of eggs you would have to eat to treat the disease. The number of eggs was determined by the disease, for cancer it was about 21 eggs a day.
While the claims of quail meat and eggs treating every disease known to man are somewhat outrageous it doesn’t take away from the fact that quails have numerous benefits to our health.
Benefits of quail eggs
