Meh. I buy those egg substitutes by the carton when making my morning breakfast - it's only egg whites. Real eggs are too messy for me anyway.

I'm eating eggs until they make up their goddamned mind.

Every day? Who the f*ck has time?

2-3 eggs each Sat and Sun. Sometimes waffles or pancakes. Won't change it no matter what you say.

F*ck your study.

I had mine with hash browns and sausage this morning.  But then I have a really really really short commute.

I thought the cardiologist were concentrating on Sodium this week.
Eggs are fine, as long as you don't pour salt on them.
Or eat one of those salt lamps.

Consuming an additional 300 milligrams of dietary cholesterol per day was associated with a 3.2% higher risk of heart disease and a 4.4% higher risk of early death, Zhong's analysis of the data showed. And each additional half an egg consumed per day was associated with a 1.1% higher risk of cardiovascular disease and 1.9% higher risk of early death due to any cause, the researchers found.

I like eggs, so I am comfortable with those numbers.  I don't smoke, I don't drink soda and I eat fast food about once a month, so I feel I'm still in positive territory numbers-wise.

I like eggs.

My blood work is very good for a 35 yo. I'm 67 and only walk for exercise.  No family history of heart disease, either.  I love eggs and have eaten them through FIVE reversals of the debate.

And the US recommended salt intake is less than half of what has been proved to be safe.

I've been doing the keto\low carb diet since last June. I eat eggs multiple times a week. Over easy, scrambled, omelettes, hard boiled, and other ways.
My lipids test a month ago, the first one since I started the diet, showed all my levels in the optimal range. Total cholesterol, HDL, LDL and triglycerides all fine. I was kind of surprised actually.
I've learned it isn't the amount of fat you eat, it's the kinds of fat.

From the Study: Individual participant data were pooled from 6 prospective US cohorts using data collected between March 25, 1985, and August 31, 2016. Self-reported diet data were harmonized using a standardized protocol.

Yeah... can toss this study in the garbage and go fry up a 5 egg omelet!

One hard boiled with my bowl of crispix is usually breakfast. If I want to change it up, I do biscuits and gravy topped with poached eggs. Like a broke-ass benedict.

Oh fark this bullsiat. Both my grandmothers ate one or two fried eggs each morning, and buttered toast with a cup of coffee with sugar and cream. They had no gym membership. They just went about their lives and died at their eighties peacefully. Something is desperately wrong. Or statistics.

What the study fails to mention is that if you eat that many eggs you smell like farts and people want you to die.

/Riding the subway in the morning is all coffee breath and egg farts. Jesus, people, stop by the bathroom before you leave home, m'kay?

What I like to do is poach the eggs in bacon grease to minimize their damage to my system.

Ditto.

I've been no sugar/good quality carbs (2 1/2 years) intermittent fasting (9 months) and generally eating more fat.

I know were dealing with an N of 2.....

I've pretty much eaten 2 eggs a day for the last 25 years....they are real food which is exactly what we should all be eating more of.

This is junk science reducing something as complex as this down to a single variable. BMI? Exercise? Genetics? Diet? Smoker? Alcohol use? etc..

How the f*ck does sh*t like this get published?

They get published because even thought the methodology is questionable, it's been that way since like the '50s. They're easy to pump out, they're cheap to conduct because they typically use existing data sets, and nobody calls them on their bullshiat. They're gonna keep coming out for a long time.

I haven't looked at the actual paper in question, so I probably shouldn't say the methodology is bad. But I'd be willing to bet a good amount of money that it is.

A 4.4% increase! Oh my God.
 
2019-03-16 12:08:30 PM  
And they don't include other more likely risk factors that probably are more detrimental to health like smoking, alcohol consumption, excess sodium, refined sugar...

Science proves that cholesterol causes heart attacks.

Science proves it doesn't
