1 egg a day – 20% lower risk of heart problems

A study conducted in China shows that eggs can be safely assigned to superfoods that are useful to consume daily. The survey was conducted among 400,000 people and shows that those who eaten 1 hen egg a day had an average 20% lower risk of developing heart problems in the long run.

Among the conditions in the group of heart disease, Chinese scientists account for arrhythmias, heart valve problems, and well-known worst conditions – narrowing and blockage of the coronary vessels and heart attack . All of these health problems can develop as a result of unhealthy eating, and regular consumption of eggs can serve as a successful preventative measure.

Exaggeration with eggs continues to be denied and referred to as an unhealthy eating habit, and their regular  consumption in small quantities  brings their benefits. Eggs are rich in trace elements, complete protein and cholesterol. And while protein is a must-have component of healthy eating, it is also often referred to as cholesterol in normal amounts.

Data from Chinese scientists show that people who consume 1 egg a day have a 25% lower risk of developing a hemorrhagic heart attack . This is a condition where there is a massive hemorrhage caused by tearing the wall of a blood vessel in the heart. Statistics show that regular moderate consumption of eggs reduces the risk of another type of heart attack – ischemic . Heart damage is caused by his difficult blood supply due to the narrowing or blockage of a coronary blood vessel. The risk of ischemic heart attack in people who eat 1 egg a day is estimated to be 15% lower compared to people who do not eat eggs.

Scientists who conducted the study say it is the largest one ever to track the effect of egg consumption and to prove their positive influence in small quantities.

However, it is good to keep in mind that scientists’ data are entirely observable and do not prove the direct effect of eggs to reduce the risk of heart disease . It is possible that the positive effect in people who regularly consume eggs is due to other factors. What is important here is that the observed group is large enough to give relevant results. More importantly, the study proves that eating eggs in moderate amounts in no way increases the risk of cardiovascular disease . On the contrary – especially in combination with other healthy lifestyle factors, eggs may have a lower risk of such diseases.
