Eating 3 Eggs a Week Increases Risk of Premature Death

Suara.com – A new researcher reveals that eating 3 eggs a week can increase the risk of premature death. Experts have warned that egg yolks contain high cholesterol and fat which can lead to cancer, heart attacks and strokes.

Later, studies published in PLOS Medicine found that eating 3 eggs per week increased the risk of premature death by a fifth.

The study’s findings showed that those who consumed an additional 300 milligrams of cholesterol a day, or about 3 eggs a week, had a 19 percent higher risk of dying over the next 16 years.

Deaths from cancer and cardiovascular disease increased by 24 and 16 percent, respectively. Now, experts urge the public to just eat egg whites.

“In this study, eating eggs and cholesterol were associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer death,” said Professor Yu Zhang, from Zhejiang University, China. The Sun.

The relationship between eggs and health problems has been debated for years. Eggs have been included as a diet food in several places. However, egg yolk contains high enough cholesterol which is dangerous for health.

“These findings suggest limiting cholesterol intake and replacing whole eggs with egg whites for consumption. This method can help maintain heart health,” explained Prof. Zhang.

However, experts in the UK warn that these findings still require a lot of research. Dr Duane Mellor, Senior Lecturer at Aston School of Medicine, Aston University, said this study only estimates the number of eggs consumed.
