New study finds, once again, that eggs are good for you and won't hurt your cholesterol
· Apr 1, 2024 ·

Guys, I've got some good news.

This study shows exactly what I want it to show, that eggs are good for you!

Normally I laugh and mock the so-called experts, or in this case "eggsperts," but they've given me some good news I want to believe.

Fast-forward to the present; further clarity beckons with the American College trial's preliminary insights. This controlled study put fortified eggs — ones with extra omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D — under the spotlight to ascertain their impact on heart disease markers.

The study's four-month data found that participants at high cardiovascular risk who consumed 12 or more enriched eggs weekly fared similarly in good high-density lipoprotein and bad low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels as those who had fewer than two eggs per week.

You may not like it, but this is the ideal male diet:

I mean, for decades we've been told that eggs are good for you, then they're bad for you, then they're good, now they're bad again.

Maybe we just need to look at the alternatives to eggs and the generally awful American diet now and say, "You know what, maybe an egg-heavy, high-protein diet wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

"This is a small study, but it gives us reassurance that eating fortified eggs is OK with regard to lipid effects over four months, even among a more high-risk population," said lead author Nina Nouhravesh, a research fellow at the Duke Clinical Research Institute, in a statement, Study Finds reported.

The study has a few problems, though. Its small participant number and self-reported dietary habits, coupled with funding from a large fortified egg producer like Eggland's Best, invite skepticism and warrant follow-up research for firmer conclusions.

Okay... maybe don't start slonking raw eggs just yet. You can cook them if you want.

But if you take the average American diet, eggs are the last thing I'd be worried about.
