Eggs: Good for you?

Cholesterol and all, eggs may not increase risk of heart disease

Eggs have long suffered from a bad reputation, mostly due to their high cholesterol content (the American Heart Association recommends consuming no more than 300 milligrams of cholesterol a day, a limit exceeded by eating two eggs). But studies suggest the ADA’s recommendation—based on the assumption that eating foods high in cholesterol raises cholesterol levels in your blood—might be misguided. In fact, a 2006 study conducted by the University of Connecticut found a lack of connection between the risk of coronary heart disease from consuming eggs, and that regularly eating eggs actually “may have multiple beneficial effects.”
