Eating Eggs Does Not Increase Risk Of Heart Disease Among Adolescents

July 19, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A European study conducted in nine countries found that adolescents who ate larger amounts of eggs did not have higher serum cholesterol nor worse cardiovascular health, regardless of their levels of physical activity. Health experts have long followed the 1973 American Heart Association recommendation that egg consumption be limited to three a week, because of the higher cholesterol levels. But most foods rich in cholesterol are usually also rich in saturated fats. A medium-size egg contains 200 milligrams of cholesterol but has more unsaturated fats than saturated fats and only 70 calories.
