A review and meta-analysis of studies from 1982 to 2015, evaluating relationships between egg intake and coronary heart disease (total of 276,000 subjects) and stroke (total of 308,000 subjects) has found that consumption of up to one egg per day had no association with coronary heart disease (CHD) and a 12% reduction of stroke risk.
The study follows on from a 2015 meta-analysis in which dietary cholesterol was shown to have no association with cardiovascular diseases, including coronary artery disease and stroke. Consistent with this, the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans placed no daily limit on dietary cholesterol and noted eggs are an affordable, accessible, nutrient-rich source of high quality protein.
