Eggs intake not linked to cardiovascular risk, despite conflicting advice

According to a new study by the University of Sydney, eating up to 12 eggs per week for a year did not increase cardiovascular risk factors in people with pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes. The study was conducted in order to help people clearing up conflicting dietary advice around egg consumption.

In the underlying trial, members expected to keep up their weight while leaving on a high-egg (12 eggs per week) or low-egg (less than two eggs for every week) diet, with no distinction in cardiovascular hazard markers distinguished toward the end of three months.

Similar members at that point left on a weight reduction slim down for an extra three months, while proceeding with their high or low egg consumption. For a further a half year – up to a year altogether – members were followed up by analysts and proceeded with their high or low egg admission.

At all stages, the two gatherings demonstrated no unfavorable changes in cardiovascular hazard markers and accomplished comparable weight reduction – paying little respect to their level of egg utilization.

Dr. Nick Fuller from the University’s Boden Institute of Obesity, Nutrition, Exercise and Eating Disorders at the Charles Perkins Centre said, “Despite differing advice around safe levels of egg consumption for people with pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes, our research indicates people do not need to hold back from eating eggs if this is part of a healthy diet.”

“A healthy diet as prescribed in this study emphasized replacing saturated fats (such as butter) with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (such as avocado and olive oil).”

While eggs themselves are high in dietary cholesterol – and individuals with type 2 diabetes have a tendency to have larger amounts of the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol – this examination underpins existing exploration that shows the utilization of eggs has little impact on the levels of cholesterol in the blood of the general population eating them.

The study has the potential health benefits of eggs for people with pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes, as well as the general population. The different egg diets also appeared to have no impact on weight.

The study is published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition today.

I probably get less eggs than that in a given week, but not much less.

Egg studies have proven that a number of times over the last 5 years.. There will be another study sometime that will discount that info..It seems that happens often.."Everything in moderation" is my motto..Hope you are having a good week..

Good news! Some ten years ago there was panic about eating eggs and high cholesterol. I stopped eating eggs, and the result was- hairloss. It took me a long time to realize what was causing my hairloss, and even more time to recover.
Nowadays, I usually have 6 small-medium size eggs per Week.
By the way, I believe the egg protein helps in the weightloss process more than any other sort of protein.

I can’t think of any food that has had more backers and detractors at the same time! The prevailing view on the benefit or otherwise of eggs depends on which opinion you read most recently! Oh...and I had a pickled egg with my lunch today!

Eggs are so good for me because I need the protein. We had eggs for lunch today since we don't eat them as often for breakfast. They are healthy and tasty....cooked in a tablespoon of butter!

when I want to lose weight if I eat just two eggs for breakfast I tend to lose weight easier in the day.
