There seems to be a different study of eggs every week, with some claiming they're good for you and others saying they're dangerous to your health. More said that they are okay, but only if you limit the number of eggs you eat per week.
It was hard to figure out how much egg was edible, but according to the egg yolks at McCaster University in Canada, the number seems to be one a day.
The study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating one egg a day did not increase the risk of heart disease. To ensure the accuracy of the results, the researchers examined the egg consumption of more than 146,000 people from 21 countries and the cases of more than 31,000 people with heart disease. Those who ate seven or fewer eggs a week were not at higher risk for heart disease or mortality.
"The moderate intake of eggs, which is around one egg a day in most people, does not increase the risk of cardiovascular disease or mortality, even if cardiovascular disease or diabetes has occurred in the past," said Mahshid Dehghan, first author of the study in a publication.
We know that eggs contain vital nutrients and even help men increase their testosterone. It is also a fact that too much good can be bad for you.
Then why did it take so long to find the magic number of eggs you can eat a week? The researchers said previous studies were based on small sample sizes and were limited to only a few countries, as opposed to the one in which a large number of people of different nationalities were represented.
So go ahead, just not too much.
