Research reveals egg consumption association with lower risk of developing Cardiovascular disease (CVD)
The research - Egg Consumption, Cardiovascular Disease and Cardiometabolic Risk Factors - was conducted on adults in Greece and revealed eating 1-3 eggs a week and 4-7 eggs a week was linked with a 60% and 75% (respectively) lower risk of developing CVD.
In the past, older people (who are typically the most at risk for CVD) were warned off eggs. However, evidence over the last 20 years has led to major changes in health advice in the UK. The British Heart Foundation says: "there is now no recommended limit on how many eggs people should eat, as long as you eat a varied diet".
With the limits now removed for eggs in our diet, and the clear health benefits, there’s ample reason to enjoy an omelette or boiled egg with soldiers. Whether for a traditional breakfast, or a quick mid-week lunch, eggs deserve a prime place on everyone’s menu.
