Egg consumption and risk of coronary heart disease and stroke

Egg consumption and risk of coronary heart disease and stroke | Nutrition topics | Scoop.it

Higher consumption of eggs (up to one egg per day) is not associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease or stroke. The increased risk of coronary heart disease among diabetic patients and reduced risk of hemorrhagic stroke associated with higher egg consumption in subgroup analyses warrant further studies.  The authors concluded that the findings of their meta-analysis “do not support a positive association between egg consumption and cardiovascular disease outcomes in the general population

The great roller coaster ride of eggs as good, neutral or bad food source continues.  The main problem with eggs is a high level of cholesterol (about 200 mg/ large egg) The dietary limit recommended daily by the AHA is 300 mg.  The great attraction to eggs are that they are high in protein. Several potential reasons for the lack of an overall association between egg consumption and coronary heart disease or stroke re considered in teh discussion. Although dietary cholesterol influences plasma concentrations of serum cholesterol, the effects are relatively small. In addition, epidemiologic studies have found weak or little association between dietary cholesterol intake and cardiovascular disease risk.

 For now we can relax our restriction on eggs.
