Cholesterol / CVD
Some studies have found that egg consumption is associated with a higher risk of ischemic heart disease in patients with diabetes. Epidemiologic studies of egg consumption in relation to risk of heart failure (HF) and stroke types are scarce.
The aim of this study was to examine whether egg consumption is associated with incidence of HF, myocardial infarction (MI), or stroke types.
Dietary cholesterol has been suggested to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), which has led to US recommendations to reduce cholesterol intake.
The authors examine the effects of dietary cholesterol on CVD risk in healthy adults by using systematic review and meta-analysis.

Background: Associations between food patterns and adiposity are poorly understood.
Objective: Two statistical approaches were used to examine the potential association between egg consumption and adiposity.
Prospective data examining the relationship between dietary protein intake and incident coronary heart disease (CHD) are inconclusive. Most evidence is derived from homogenous populations such as health professionals. Large community-based analyses in more diverse samples are lacking.
