Association Between Egg Consumption and Risk of Cardiovascular Outcomes: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Considerable controversy remains on the relationship between egg consumption and cardiovascular disease risk. The objective of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to explore the association between egg consumption and overall cardiovascular disease events.
We systematically searched Ovid MEDLINE, Ovid Embase, Ovid Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, Scopus, and Web of Science from database inception in 1966 through January 2020 for observational studies that reported the association between egg consumption and cardiovascular disease events. Two investigators independently reviewed data. Conflicts were resolved through consensus. Random-effects meta-analyses were used. Sources of heterogeneity were analysed.
We identified 23 prospective studies with a median follow-up of 12.28 years. A total of 1,415,839 individuals with a total of 123,660 cases and 157,324 cardiovascular disease events were included. Compared with the consumption of no or 1 egg/day, higher egg consumption (more than 1 egg/day) was not associated with significantly increased risk of overall cardiovascular disease events (pooled hazard ratios, 0.99; 95% confidence interval, 0.93-1.06; P < .001; I² = 72.1%). Higher egg consumption (more than 1 egg/day) was associated with a significantly decreased risk of coronary artery disease (pooled hazard ratios, 0.89; 95% confidence interval, 0.86-0.93; P < .001; I² = 0%), compared with consumption of no or 1 egg/day.
Our analysis suggests that higher consumption of eggs (more than 1 egg/day) was not associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease, but was associated with a significant reduction in risk of coronary artery disease.

i still love eggs but no more favorite eating alas
but lets keep eye on the filled part right :)
blessings to you and family!
I love eggs, esp. the yolks :-)
I love scrambled eggs with a passion. Three for breakfast is just about right. My father cursed a bit when we told him eggs were bad for him. He did from pancreatic cancer. The doctor, at one point, said that the only thing keeping him alive was a strong heart. He lived 19 months with pancreatic cancer and refused treatment. I will continue to eat scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, and eggs in dishes.
I love eggs, cooked various ways. The casserole looks yummy.
Take care, enjoy your day. Have a happy weekend!
I like eggs a lot. As always, a delicious looking post.
Great to know this about eggs. I am now going to have eggs for breakfast tomorrow instead of my usual muesli.
I'm especially partial to hard-boiled eggs.
Good news! I eat almost daily 1 boiled egg in the morning. Eggs are essential food and essential ingredient in baking and cooking.
This is good news. I tend to eat at least two a day (scrambled or with a veggie omelet) plus others that might end up in pastries, etc.
I'm definitely an egg person, and found this article to be quite informative and important. Thanks a bunch and Happy Friyay! RO
I love eating eggs in all its forms.
The casserole looks delicious.
Hugs and greetings.
Eggs are so versatile, and so delicious!
I also love eggs and was most impressed with this article, Jan.

Yes, we eat eggs, not every day but we do enjoy them!!
I like eggs too.
Good news about eggs. My husband eats a lot of them. I like mine in egg salads. yum.
I adore eggs! I'm so glad they're good for us!
Isn't it funny how eggs have been the bad guys and are now the good guys? I'm glad their the good guys.
I always have pickled eggs. And in other versions, too. Sadly Hubby doesn´t like them...
Thank you. This is very nice to know.
i enjoy eggs and eat them often for breakfast. BUT on any given day this information can go the other way, i just tend to eat what i enjoy!!!
I enjoy eggs too and great for cooking and baking. They are the main reason I couldn't go fully vegan.
I tend to forget about eggs, which is a shame, since they're both easy and good for me.
Me encantan los huevos, los como de distintas formas. Besos.
I love eggs! Big Hugs!
