During this time the egg is often considered as a food that is not good for heart health. One reason is because the eggs are said to have high cholesterol, so the risk to cause disease.
But is it true? A recent study conducted by researchers in China involving more than 400 thousand people actually proves otherwise. When people diligently eat eggs at least once a day the risk of cardiovascular disease so much lower than people who do not eat eggs.

Published in the journal Heart, researchers more specifically mentioned people whose average consumption of 0.76 eggs a day had 11 percent lower risk for cardiovascular disease.
"This study is important to note especially for countries where eggs become the main intake of high-quality protein and other nutrients," said Dr. Luc Djousse of Harvard Medical School.
"The message that can be taken from the study is that if eggs are consumed naturally, there is no risk for heart disease or stroke," he said as quoted by Reuters on Tuesday (22/05/2018).
Another study published in the BMJ journal in 2013 saw that consumption of one egg per day was not associated with an increase in coronary heart disease or stroke. In addition, another study by Finnish researchers in 2016 also saw that intake of cholesterol from eggs did not increase the risk of disease in people who have genetic factors more susceptible to blood cholesterol.
"So what actually makes a bad egg for you is how you prepare it, one egg has 71 calories and two grams of saturated fat," says nutritionist Lisa Drayer.
