The global association between egg intake and Ischemic Heart Disease

The relationship between egg consumption and ischemic heart disease (IHD) remains controversial. 

However, a recent extensive study looked at the association between eating eggs and IHD incidence (IHDi) and mortality (IHDd), across 142 countries with populations of at least one million, using 28 years of international data from 1990 to 2018.

It revealed a significant negative association, suggesting that adequate egg intake may suppress IHDi and IHDd on a global scale.
