Do Eggs Cause Heart Disease? | LIVESTRONG.COM

The Verdict

As always, the foods you eat are your choice. If you don’t want to consume a particular food, then don’t. It’s your life and your body and you should feel empowered to make the choices that are both sustainable and create a sense of dietary comfort. But for a scientific perspective, there’s no reason to fear omelets, scrambles, or frittatas until controlled research can provide a cause-and-effect relationship between eggs and disease. If you suffer from vascular disease, it might be wise to watch your egg consumption, suggests Roussell. Otherwise, there’s a lack of scientific support that should make you fear the incredible edible egg. Not to mention, eggs–and especially their yolks–are still loaded with valuable nutrients, protein, and healthy fat, says Mohr.
