Eggs Improve Bad Cholesterol

Many people steer clear of eating eggs altogether. However, what they may not know is that eggs do not cause an increase in cholesterol, nor do they increase the risk of heart disease.

With the high number of people in northern Mexico suffering from coronary artery disease (CAD), researchers felt it was essential to study the possible causes of the disease. More importantly, it had yet to be discovered what the effect of dietary cholesterol and risks of CAD was for children living in this region.

Thus, experiments were conducted in order to learn the effect whole eggs, or an equivalent amount in egg whites, had on cholesterol levels in children.

The Study:

29 girls and 25 boys were tested
Subjects ranged in ages 8-12
Subjects were randomly assigned to two groups: whole eggs or egg whites consumption
After 30 days in one period, along with a three-week washout period, the subjects were switched to the alternate testing

The Results:

LDL levels increased after consuming two eggs a day, but decreased when broken down by subclasses of LDL cholesterol
Eating two eggs a day helped maintain LDL/HDL cholesterol levels
