Recently a study was conducted amongst 215,000 people who consumed one to five eggs a week on a regular basis. The study was conducted for a period of thirty four years and their heart health was consistently monitored in order to check for any sort of degeneration. So far the research team has not found any link between the consumption of eggs and the increase of cardiovascular disease. It has only been found that egg consumers who have type two diabetes have a higher chance of developing cardiovascular problems.

"Moderate consumption -- up to one egg per day -- is not associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease.On average, most people don't eat more than an egg a day. They might eat two eggs per breakfast, but only two or three times per week. So the average consumption is actually less than one egg per day.," said study author Dr. Frank Hu, who chairs the department of nutrition at Harvard University's T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

The study also found that egg consumers in Asia had lower risk of heart disease because they incorporate this nutritional powerhouse into their recipes instead of separate consumption. Eggs are a powerhouse containing all essential vitamins and minerals and moderate consumption is beneficial for health.
