    Nonsense science for gullible fools...Eggs are GOOD, TASTY, PROTEIN RICH and NUTRITIOUS...you are fine on the suggested 3 or even 6 day...but like Spadesheart says...40 a day is too many! lol!

    And the air we breath is slowly poisoning us too from pollution. There is a point in time where you wonder who cares enough to continue funding these studies??? Don't we have better things to study like finding a cure for cancer?

    "This study did not find a cause-and-effect relationship; it only found an association. And other factors may affect that association. They include the way the eggs were cooked, or changes to peoples' diets that occurred after the study information was gathered..."

    I'm generally not into anecdotal evidence, BUT, I just had my cholesterol checked for our health insurance incentive. I was a bit concerned considering I eat eggs almost daily. Well, my numbers were perfect. Triglycerides were actually below 45 and the machine couldn't give a number. Bad cholesterol was in range and good cholesterol was nice and high. I'll continue to eat my eggs.

    I see that despite objective evidence not changing throughout the past few decades has not stopped scientists, journalists, politicians, and other particular interests from making wild assumptions and predictions.

    Gross negligence and disinformation.

    I saw the thread title and immediately thought of this video.

    Hard boiled eggs are the reason I’ve had so much success with weight loss. When I get a craving for something I have an egg and it keeps me hungry for a very long time.

    STOP READING ARTICLES!

    Seriously folks, these have zero credibility, and *anyone* can get them published.

    Eggs - doesn't get any "cleaner" than consuming the soul of an unborn despite not having "clean" macros necessarily (opinion)

    I need to cut my 3x-a-week breakfast with 2 eggs (no yolk) and bacon. I blame this for my high 174 total cholesterol.

    I doubt egg whites cause high cholesterol.

    I am not one of the few sensitive to cholesterol in food, and go through periods where I have a dozen eggs a week with no issues (my cholesterol has always been good and got even better when I lost weight).

    174 is normal. It's over 200 when you should maybe do something.

    By medical current standards, you are correct. Except that about 1/3 of heart strokes are in people with total cholesterol ranging 150-200. You almost never see heart strokes in people with total cholesterol below 150. This is where I want to be.

    A couple of years ago my cholesterol of 139 was flagged on my results as too low... that lab said total cholesterol was supposed to be between 140 and 200. Seems like 140-150 is a very narrow result to be shooting for.

    The range shown on my lab test is 120-200.

    Three to four eggs a week huh? I eat 3/day. Maybe I should cut back. Just to save some money.

    Low cholesterol is where strokes seem to happen. :(
