A new study claims eating more than two eggs on a daily basis can increase your risk of heart disease and premature death.The study's findings were originally published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
For the study, the team examined the diets, health and lifestyle habits of close to 30,000 adults in the US. Researchers tracked their habit for almost 31 years.
The team discovered that due to the cholesterol in eggs, it can be extremely damaging for our health when consumed in large amounts.300 milligrams of cholesterol in the body a day increased the risk of heart disease by 17 per cent and early death by 18 per cent.
"Eating several eggs a week is reasonable but I recommend people to avoid eating three egg omelettes every day," study author Katherine Tucker, Professor at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, told a news portal. Adding, "Nutrition is all about moderation and balance."
The US Department of Agriculture reveals one large egg contains nearly 200 milligrams of cholesterol.
Another study discovered antibiotics taken for more than two months can also increase the risk of heart diseases like heart attacks and strokes."Antibiotic use is the most critical factor in altering the balance of microorganisms in the gut. Previous studies have shown a link between alterations in the microbiotic environment of the gut and inflammation and narrowing of the blood vessels, stroke, and heart disease," Professor Lu Qi and author of the study told a news portal. The findings of this study were originally published in the Journal of European Heart.
One study suggests time in a sauna can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease. "There are several possible reasons why sauna use may decrease the risk of death due to CVD. Our research team has shown in previous studies that high sauna use is associated with lower blood pressure. Additionally, sauna use is known to trigger an increase in heart rate equal to that seen in low to moderate intensity physical exercise," study author Professor Jari Laukkanen, told a news portal.
