Tehran, YJC. High school student has introduced a diet for chickens that makes them lay eggs full of omega-3 fatty acid and magnesium.

Razieh Esmaili is a 3rd-year high school student of natural sciences from Rezvanshahr, North Khorasan. She has introduced a diet for chickens with which they will lay eggs with special characteristics.

Explaining her experiment, Razieh said "We defined a diet for chickens where each day we would give them 50 grams of this supplement which includes soybeans, stale bread, rice, and some species of a local plant. After 10 days the chicken laid a double-yolk egg bigger than common eggs. The egg is packed with omega 3 and magnesium.”

Providing comments on the nutritional features of the egg she said "One who takes it their blood pressure and hyperlipidemia will decrease. Also, due to high levels of magnesium, if a pregnant lady uses the eggs in their first three months of labor, it will prevent the formation of brown pigment in the [baby’s] eye and the eye will turn into a light blue.”

Pointing out that she received the idea from an Indian physician, Razieh said "The discovery has not yet been registered anywhere. One of our relatives has already been experimented on with positive result. We are doing experiments on a laboratory rat.”

Esmaili’s colleague Fatemeh Akhlaghi added "My grandfather is an experimental physician who had studied in India for some years. The idea comes from there. A woman with baby who didn’t have any genetics for blue eyes changed her child’s eye color by having these eggs.”

 "An American scientist has also made some research into why the eyes of babies from women in Europe and the Mediterranean are blue. The answer is the high amounts of magnesium in the sea water and the fruit they use. It will lie on a chromosome which is responsible for marking the eye color,” she further said.
