Study finds three or more eggs a week increases health risk

CHICAGO – A new study suggests you may want to pass on that three-egg omelet for breakfast from now on.

Researchers from Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine followed nearly 30,000 adults over a three-decade period.

They found that those who eat three or four eggs a week have a higher risk of heart disease and early death compared to those who eat fewer eggs.

Researchers say one large egg has 186 milligrams of dietary cholesterol in the yolk.

The study found that eating 300 milligrams of dietary cholesterol per day was associated with a 17% higher risk of cardiovascular disease and 18% higher risk of death.

Researchers say the findings should be critical when it comes to developing and modifying dietary guidelines.
