Eating 3 or More Eggs a Day May Increase Risk of Heart Disease, Study Says
Eating 3 or More Eggs a Day May Increase Risk of Heart Disease, Study Says A new study published in the medical journal, 'JAMA,' notes that a single egg contains about 186 mg of cholesterol.
According to the study, eating 3 or more eggs a day (or 300 mg of cholesterol) increases the risk of both heart disease and early death.
29,000 people were followed for an average of 17.5 years.
During that time, 5,400 cardiovascular events happened, including strokes, heart failure and heart disease deaths.
As opposed to previous studies, other factors such as smoking or limited exercise were assessed in the current findings.
