Arkansas Eggs Safe To Eat_-5650357502006968212
In today’s Fox and Your Family,  eggs may not be as bad for your heart as once thought. Researchers followed 1,000 middle aged Finnish men over 20 years. All were heart healthy at the study’s start and about a third carried the APOE4 gene, which increases sensitivity to dietary cholesterol.
By the end of the study period more than 200 experienced a heart attack. Investigators determined neither a person’s egg habits nor overall cholesterol consumption had any bearing on heart attack risk or the risk for hardening of the arterial walls. Even in those who carried the APOE4 gene. While the study did not find a link between dietary cholesterol and heart issues. It could not prove dietary cholesterol has a significant impact on cardiovascular disease. The University of Eastern Finland provided funding for the study.
