Eggs Are Bad Again

"A more appropriate recommendation would be eating egg whites instead of whole eggs or eating whole eggs in moderation, for the goal of reducing risk of cardiovascular disease and death", he said.

The new study is an observational study, so it doesn't prove that cholesterol caused the increased risk of heart disease that the researchers documented. Participants were followed for roughly 17 years, on average. "People who consume less cholesterol have a lower risk of heart disease".

This study, done by researchers at Northwestern University in Chicago, looked at a group of 29,615 adults from six ongoing studies in the US.

One large egg has 186 milligrams of cholesterol in the yolk. The study showed the more eggs, the greater the risk.

"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.

"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.

The researchers found that eating three to four eggs per week was linked to a 6 percent higher risk of cardiovascular disease and an 8 percent higher risk of any cause of death.

Earlier versions of the dietary guidelines have advised Americans to keep their cholesterol under 300 milligrams daily.

It's been debated for years: Are eggs good or bad for you? That's because the average USA adult now gets 300 milligrams of cholesterol a day and eats three or four eggs a week - and their data indicates it's bad for them. Most recently, the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans stated that cholesterol wasn't a concern, but that individuals should "also eat as little dietary cholesterol as possible".

Should I stop eating eggs?

The authors even suggest that the most recent version of the federal dietary guidelines, in which eating eggs is still recommended, may need to be re-evaluated in light of their study's findings.

"We found dietary cholesterol, particularly eggs, had a strong association with cardiovascular disease, especially stroke", Allen said. Eggs contain other nutrients important to a healthy diet, such as iron and amino acids. "Eat them in moderation".

Wright praised the researchers for using a large sample of people, and taking into account unhealthy risk factors, such as saturated fat intake, when assessing the data.

However, though flawed, Cho says these studies are important for a better understanding of nutrition research. The data were collected during a single visit. Over the follow-up period, a total of 5,400 cardiovascular events occurred, including 1,302 fatal and nonfatal strokes, 1,897 incidents of fatal and nonfatal heart failure and 113 other heart disease deaths.

A major limitation of the study is participants' long-term eating patterns weren't assessed. "These new findings provide one piece of evidence", Allen says. "But we think they represent an estimate of a person's dietary intake". However, that study was done on people who weren't eating a typical Western diet.
