For several decades, eggs were believed to increase heart disease risk because of their high cholesterol content.
Two large whole eggs contain 422 mg of cholesterol, which exceeds the maximum daily limit that was in place for many decades. However, this restriction on dietary cholesterol has now been removed.
When you eat eggs or other cholesterol-rich foods, your liver produces less cholesterol. As a result, your blood cholesterol levels will likely stay about the same or increase only slightly.
Studies have shown that egg consumption generally has beneficial or neutral effects on heart disease risk.
Studies on eggs and diabetes provide mixed results. Several observational studies show an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, while controlled trials show an improvement in various health markers.
People with certain genetic traits may see a greater rise in their cholesterol levels after eating eggs.
Eggs are high in a number of important vitamins and minerals, along with high-quality protein.
Eggs help you stay full, may promote weight loss and help protect your brain and eyes. They may also reduce inflammation.
In general, eggs are one of the healthiest and most nutritious food you can eat.
In most cases, they do not increase cholesterol levels much. Even when they do, they often increase HDL (the “good”) cholesterol and modify the shape and size of LDL in a way that reduces disease risk.
However, as with most things in nutrition, this may not apply to everyone and some people may need to limit their egg intake.
