A popular breakfast and pre-workout snack, eggs are a staple in many people's diet across the world. However, a new study warns that excess egg consumption can increase your risk of diabetes. Researchers found that those who consumed one or more eggs daily, had a 60% higher risk of diabetes and the effect was more pronounced in women than in men. The longitudinal study conducted between 1991 to 2009 is the first to assess egg consumption in a large sample of Chinese adults. The findings have been published in the British Journal of Nutrition.
