An egg a day may not be all that bad, says new Harvard study

Mar 23, 2020 13:38 IST

For years, it's been debated that eggs are bad for the heart because of high levels of cholesterol. However, a new study by scientists from Harvard University's T.H. Chan School of Public Health seems to disagree. Eating an egg a day isn't all that bad! Scientists looked at the diets of over 2,00,000 people for a period of 34 years who consumed anything between 1-5 eggs on an average a week. Over time, they found no link between cases of cardiovascular diseases and eggs and the trick lies in moderate consumption. This study was combined with 27 other studies from around the world. It has been published in the British Medical Journal, however, further analysis is needed to ascertain the findings since it was an observational study.
