The foods we consume on a daily basis have numerous influences on our bodies, some of which are yet unknown to scientists. They can raise the chance of life-threatening illnesses or help prevent them.
New research has found that consuming too many eggs on a daily basis might raise the risk of cancer mortality.
Researchers from around the world conducted a meta-analysis, published in Frontiers in Nutrition on May 27, 2022, of previous cohort studies that investigated how dietary cholesterol intake and egg consumption affect individuals’ risk of dying from any cause, their chances of dying from cardiovascular disease, and their chances of dying from cancer.
Through a comprehensive study and also a meta-analysis, they discovered that each egg eaten in a given day was linked with an increased risk of dying from any cause and cancer. They found no link between egg consumption and heart disease mortality.
There was virtually no risk for those who only eat eggs a few times each week. There was ” very little evidence of higher risks” for people who ate less than half an egg each day on average, according to researchers.
Plus, while this research found a link, it does not indicate that you should abandon your breakfast habits. There are numerous aspects throughout a person’s life that influence their cancer risk, and no single little lifestyle modification will be the deciding factor.
“There is no such thing as one meal that will determine someone’s diet or life style. It’s more important to have a general eating pattern than any one food,” registered dietitian, Julie Lanford says. “My advice is to eat a wide range of fruits and vegetables, pay attention to the hunger and fullness cues, and include physical activity in your day and other self-care activities into your week. I don’t believe you need to worry about the number of eggs you consume or skip.”
Eggs also have a number of advantages. They can help your energy levels, immune system, and skin and hair health in addition to providing a boost to your memory and brain function. Furthermore, eggs may improve your HDL cholesterol (the “good” kind) while also containing a nutrient that is beneficial to memory and thinking, according on specialists.
