To Your Health: Are Eggs The New Margarine, Again – Or Not?

Dr. Alan Safdi, a world-renowned internist and gastroenterologist with encyclopedic knowledge of mind-body wellness and preventative medicine, posts on Telluride Inside… and Out under the banner of “To Your Health.” His blogs feature the most current information in his field: health, wellness and longevity.

This summer, Dr. Alan returns with his popular Live Longer Retreat wellness intensives. The dates are July 21 – July 29, 2019 ; Aug. 11 – Aug. 17, 2019; and Sept. 15 – Sept. 21, 2019. For further information, email telluridecme@gmail.com. or go to Safdi’s Telluride Longevity Institute website.

Dr. Alan continues this week with a podcast about eggs, cholesterol and heart health.

A large, new study from Northwestern University tying eggs and cholesterol consumption to heart disease risk was released in mid-March and made national headlines.

The new analysis looked at data from six large prospective studies involving almost 30,000 racially and ethnically participants, with an average follow-up of more than 17 years (1985- 2016). It found that for each additional 300 milligrams a day of cholesterol in the diet, there was a 17 percent increased risk of cardiovascular disease and an 18 percent increased risk of premature death from any cause. The findings were published in JAMA.

However, many nutritionists continue to maintain that eggs are great for you, a source of inexpensive, high-quality protein, plus vitamin B2, D, B6, B12 plus zinc, iron, copper and good (HDL) fats. Per usual, we consumers are left scratching our heads.

Are the findings in the meta study valid or flawed. Or both?

Dr. Alan weighs into the discussion here.
