Eggs consumption is not linked to Cardiovascular disease

A meta-analysis by scientists suggests that egg consumption is not associated with the risk of Cardiovascular (CVD) and cardiac mortality in the general population.  A meta-analysis is a very high level of evidence in research methods. However, egg consumption may be associated with an increased incidence of type 2 diabetes among the general population and CVD comorbidity among diabetic patients.

I knew this all along. The prohibition of eggs for its high cholesterol is outdated information. That is why I put egg consumption under moderation category in my elimination diet (From Leaf to Life, p.328). If you are vegetarian or 90% most of the time (like myself). an egg a day is fine. In addition, the healthy way to eat is poached egg with red wine (The St Hildegard method). You can view the egg demo in a Channel 8 program to be featured in late July.
