Eggs linked to increased cholesterol, risk of heart disease in new study

Eating as few as three eggs a week raises risk of heart disease, study suggests

They also found that eating three or four eggs a week was associated with a 6 percent higher risk of cardiovascular disease incidents and 8 percent higher risk of death generally. "This is just one study, so to give up eggs altogether would be extreme". The chances of dying early were also elevated.

"There's always been a [suggestion in the data] that eggs can raise cholesterol and create cardiovascular harm", said Dr. Andrew Freeman, director of the Cardiovascular Prevention and Wellness program at National Jewish Health hospital in Denver.

Cho says she never stopped recommending her patients limit their dietary cholesterol intake to 300 milligrams a day or told patients they could eat as many eggs as they want.

Basically, it all boils down to this: Eggs - in moderation - can be part of a healthy diet.

US dietary guidelines that eased limits on cholesterol have helped eggs make a comeback.

The study was published Friday in the journal JAMA. The sunny-side down news comes from Northwestern University researchers, who analyzed 30,000 USA adults over three decades. Participants were asked about their dietary habits over the last month or year in an extensive questionnaire.

The researchers calculated that those who ate 300 milligrams of cholesterol daily - about 1 ½ eggs - were 17 percent more likely to develop heart disease than those who didn't eat eggs.

But the Northwestern researchers said their study suggests those guidelines may have to be looked at yet again. They took into account high blood pressure, smoking, obesity and other traits that could contribute to heart problems. "Good" cholesterol made by the body helps with digesting food and making hormones. Research from Northwestern Medicine finds that adults who ate several eggs per week and high amounts of dietary cholesterol had a significantly higher risk of cardiovascular disease and death from any cause.

Although previous studies on egg consumption found that eggs did not increase the risk of heart disease, the studies did not have a diverse sample and were short-term studies that did not adjust for other parts of the diet, Norrina Allen, co-author and associate professor of preventive medicine, said in a press release. "Eat them in moderation".

The study said, "Cholesterol is a common nutrient in the human diet and eggs are a major source of dietary cholesterol".

Some of the confusion around cholesterol in the diet stems from two seemingly contradictory statements that appear in the 2015 dietary guidelines.

"The fact that studies outside the US appear to show favorable relationships with egg intake and cardiovascular risk may speak to the importance of what other foods are consumed with eggs as part of the overall diet pattern, as recent research has demonstrated the importance of separating eggs from other foods to understand their independent impact on health outcomes", Rubin said in a statement.

What's more, the research claimed eating an egg a day could reduce the risk of stroke, which is often linked to cardiovascular disease (CVD), by 26 per cent. Even the researchers who worked on the study aren't happy about it. "For example, poached eggs on whole-grain toast is a much healthier meal than a traditional fry up".

It's been debated for years: Are eggs good or bad for you?

"I'm sorry if it seems like a boring recommendation", she added, but for most people, the most important diet advice "should be to maintain a healthy weight, to exercise, and to get an adequate amount of sleep".
