Study: Eggs Linked To Cardiovascular Disease and Early Death
It might be time to scale back on your cholesterol intake once again.
According to Gizmodo, in 2016 the USDA no longer capped suggested cholesterol dietary limits, which were previously set at 300 milligrams a day.
But a new study released on Friday may change that.
It discovered that daily consumption of a certain amount of cholesterol, a key nutrient of eggs, is linked to a modest increase in the risk of cardiovascular disease and early death.
Gizmodo explains, "they found there was a 17 percent increased risk of cardiovascular disease associated with every extra 300 milligrams of dietary cholesterol a day, along with an 18 percent increased risk of early death."
One large egg alone is around 160 milligrams. But experts say you shouldn't cut out all of your omelettes just yet.
Study author Norrina Allen said, “With eggs, like most foods, there are good and bad parts to them. And it’s been very hard to tease apart the potential harmful effects of high cholesterol in eggs vs other beneficial nutrients.”
