Eating eggs can lead to higher risk of cardiovascular disease

Eating eggs can lead to higher risk of cardiovascular disease: study

Scrambled, poached or over easy: No matter how you take your eggs, there's not really a sunny side to a new study that links egg consumption with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. 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.

Researchers at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine and elsewhere pooled results from six previous studies, analyzing data on nearly 30,000 USA adults who self-reported daily food intake.

The researchers found that eating just three to four eggs per week was tied to a 6 percent higher risk of heart disease, and an 8 percent risk of dying from any cause, according to HealthDay.

One large egg can contain up to 186 milligrams of dietary cholesterol in the yolk alone. "As part of a healthy diet, people need to consume lower amounts of cholesterol".

Why? "The association of egg consumption and dietary cholesterol with [cardiovascular disease], although debated for decades, has more recently been thought to be less important", wrote Eckel, who was not involved in the research.

After analyzing 30,000 Americans from six separate studies, researchers concluded that eating an extra half-egg a day increased the risk of cardiovascular disease (six per cent) and premature death (eight per cent) over the study period.

"We want to remind people there is cholesterol in eggs, specifically yolks, and this has a harmful effect", added Allen. Participants were followed for roughly 17 years, on average. "The evidence is pretty clear that animal products, and high-cholesterol products, should be limited" in the diet, Freeman told Live Science.

The new findings contradict the latest dietary guidelines for Americans, released in 2015; in them, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) said that Americans no longer had to worry about keeping their cholesterol intake within a certain limit. During the time period of the follow-up, the researcher said that there were 5,400 incident CVD events (2,088 fatal and non-fatal heart disease events and 1,302 fatal and non-fatal stroke events) and 6,132 all-cause deaths.

The researchers based their conclusions on what participants said they ate at the start of each study. "Good" cholesterol made by the body helps with digesting food and making hormones.

The study left egg consumers around the world confused about whether or not eggs are safe for consumption and if yes, then how many eggs should they exactly be consuming on a daily or weekly basis.

So, is there a simple answer to whether you should be eating eggs or not?

Newer research questioned that relationship, finding that saturated fats contribute more to unhealthy levels of blood cholesterol that can lead to heart problems. "It is nice to get clearer data on this controversial topic to better inform future guidelines and our patients", Martin said of the new study. You're getting a lot of protein, though you can get that from egg whites, too. Eggs, a breakfast staple for many, can be included but other options should also be considered, "like whole grain toast with nut butter, fresh fruits, and yogurt", Hu said.
