Study: Eating Eggs Lowers Heart Disease Risk
You hungry? How about some eggs? If you’ve ever heard the debate over eggs (healthy or not), you’re not alone.
So which is it? Researchers in China may have the answer. In a recent study, researchers looked at daily egg consumption of about 513,000 people.
And they may have cracked the code on eating eggs. They found that eating ONE egg a day may:
- Cut the risk for stroke by 26 percent
- Lower the risk of death from cardiovascular disease by 18 percent
- Reduce the risk for heart disease by 12 percent
"The present study finds that there is an association between moderate level of egg consumption (up to 1 egg/day) and a lower cardiac event rate,” according to researchers. “Our findings contribute scientific evidence to the dietary guidelines with regard to egg consumption…”
How do you like your eggs? Scrambled, sunny-up, poached, boiled, or perfectly cooked into an omelet?
A typical egg contains about 78 calories. It’s a good source of protein (about 6 grams per egg). But it can get high in cholesterol (212 mg per egg). That’s one reason an egg a day is recommended over more than that.
