"Eggs seems to be much more dangerous than previously thought. The problem is their high content of cholesterol, which can increase the risk of heart attacks and premature death."
"Besides that they are good and fun to cook the eggs is also an excellent source of proteins and other nutrients. But eggs, especially the yolk, also contains large amounts of cholesterol. It is a type of fat which, if it accumulates in the blood, increasing the risk of heart attack and other related diseases."
"This has meant that the oocyte be or not to be that a food has been discussed for decades."
"for a number of years back, however, there is no upper limit on how many eggs you should eat, more than the Nfa – which this authority is always do – recommend such a varied diet as possible. The body has a control mechanism that allows the, to a certain limit, can control the amount of cholesterol in the blood."
"But now a research team at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine that there may be a reason to hold down on the äggkonsumtionen after all."
"In the current study, published in the journal Jama, included almost 30 000 adults from six different prospective or forward-looking studies where participants were followed up to 31 years."
"It turned out that the 300 milligrams of cholesterol per day in the diet meant that the risk of cardiovascular disease increased by 17 per cent and that the risk of premature death regardless of the cause increased by 18 per cent. In addition, the study showed that three to four eggs per week increased the risk of heart disease and premature death, with six and eight percent."
"the Cause is thought to be cholesterol, because a single egg yolk can contain the entire 186 milligrams of cholesterol."
"Our study shows that if two people have exactly the same diet and the only difference is the eggs, we can directly measure the effect äggkonsumtionen have on the risk of heart disease. Cholesterol, regardless of where it comes from, was associated with an elevated risk for heart disease,” says one of the researchers behind the study, Norrina Allen, in a press release."
"the Scientists do not advise from the egg altogether, but believes that one should be aware of their high cholesterol meals and eat them in moderation."
"Cholesterol is a blood fat that builds cells and produces hormones. It is also found in food, such as eggs and red meat."
"If the cholesterol in the blood gets too high, can fat start stored in the blood vessels, which can result in cardiovascular diseases such as stroke and myocardial infarction."
"the Amount of cholesterol in the blood is affected by hereditary factors, but diet and physical activity are also important."
