Many people have been concerned about the effects that eggs have on heart disease risk. In the past, people thought that eggs were bad for the heart because of their high cholesterol content. This is based on research that was done in the 1970s. However, a recent study has debunked the myth. The study was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
The study involved 128 subjects. They were asked to keep track of their egg consumption. The results of the study showed that eating eggs did not increase the risk of heart disease. All of the subjects had pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes. Dr. Nick Fuller is one of the people who was involved in the study. He stated that people with diabetes or pre-diabetes do not need to abstain from eggs.
The study lasted for three months. They were placed in two groups. One group ate 12 eggs per week. The other group ate less than two eggs per week. The results of the study showed that there were not any differences in heart disease risks between the two groups.
Nick has explained why people thought that there was a link between eggs and heart disease risks. Eggs are high in cholesterol. People with diabetes typically have higher cholesterol levels. However, eggs do not have much of an effect on cholesterol levels. Not only are eggs good for you, but they can also protect health.
Both groups were able to lose weight during the three-month period. They also continued to lose weight after the study was over. There are many health benefits that can be reaped from eating eggs. They are high in protein. They also have healthy fats, which can support brain and eye health.
Australian Eggs funded the study. However, they were not involved in the conduct, design or analysis of the study.
