When cholesterol does NOT raise cholesterolIf you have high cholesterol, you have probably been told to cut down on cholesterol consumption.

Makes sense, right?

No, says a new study presented at the American College of Cardiology’s Annual Scientific Session.

They tested several foods with some of the highest cholesterol content and the results were surprising.

Egg yolks contain a lot of cholesterol. And because of that, some scientists believe that eggs can make our blood cholesterol rise.

The new research involved 140 participants over 50 years old. All had either experienced a cardiovascular event in the past or had at least two risk factors such as high blood pressure or diabetes.

The participants were split into two groups: a fortified egg group consuming 12 or more fortified eggs per week, and a no-egg group consuming fewer than two eggs per week.

The researchers tracked the participants’ cholesterol levels over four months, including “good” HDL and “bad” LDL cholesterol. They also monitored other health markers and vitamin levels.

This is what they found:

1. There were no significant differences in cholesterol levels between the two groups, showing that the eggs had no effect on cholesterol.

2. The fortified egg group experienced a small drop in markers of heart damage and a slight increase in vitamin B levels.

These findings suggest that consuming a dozen fortified eggs per week might not negatively impact cholesterol, even for people at higher risk of heart disease.

This is yet another study proving that high cholesterol diet is NOT the cause of cholesterol plaque buildup (causing heart attack and stroke).
