To eat Eggs or not to eat Eggs. That is the question.

Consider this: The average American eats 295mg of Cholesterol and 3-4 eggs per week.


A new Observational study in JAMA by Dr. Zhongs from the American Medical Association, examined Cholesterol consumed and eggs consumed, both respectively for 17.5 years from a group of 29,615 adults for Cardiovascular Disease and mortality.

The findings?

Do NOT consume more cholesterol in your diet if you want to eat eggs daily. Basically, if you consume more than 3 eggs per week or greater than 300mg of cholesterol a day, your risk moderately increases. Meaning more eggs, higher CVD mortality. “The take home is limit animal Cholesterol and eggs if you want long term heart health.”– Dr. Lewerenz.
