Eggs and Cholesterol and Heart Disease Risk…Oh My!

Posted on

That eggs NO LONGER belong in a heart-healthy diet is what some are concluding from a study published in March 2019.

The study, Associations of Dietary Cholesterol or Egg Consumption With Incident Cardiovascular Disease and Mortality, asked the question: “Is consuming dietary cholesterol or eggs associated with incident cardiovascular disease (CVD)…? ” And the study’s answer was: “Among US adults, higher consumption of dietary cholesterol or eggs was significantly associated with higher risk of incident CVD…”

So asked and answered, right?

Well, not exactly. Some say YES—eggs are now considered not heart-healthy given this study.
