Eggs & The Current Scientific Evidence

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans no longer provide a limit for dietary cholesterol for healthy people,  however,1 some questions remain about the cardiovascular impact in people with diabetes or impaired fasting glucose.  New evidence supports that eggs can be included in a healthy dietary pattern without adverse effects linked to diabetes, and in some cases, can be linked to beneficial outcomes. Data from the Framingham Offspring Study were used to evaluate the effects of dietary cholesterol alone and in combination with markers of a healthy diet.  No statistically significant differences in glucose levels across different categories of dietary cholesterol intake were found over 20 years
