New Study Shows Doing This Every Day Will Help Prevent a Stroke

New research shows that people who eat one egg per day on average have reduced their risk of stroke by 12 percent. The research compared scientific studies between 1982 and 2015.

Why you should eat eggs

Eggs have long been linked to dietary cholesterol and coronary heart disease. So researchers analyzed over 300,000 subjects, looking for the connection. What they found was that eggs are a valuable source of protein, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, choline, vitamins, and minerals. They found no connection between eggs and coronary heart disease.

Further, the study showed that among the study participants, those who consumed one egg a day reduced their stroke risk by 12 percent. The study was published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition (JACN).

Cholesterol not a concern

The results of the study suggested that "dietary cholesterol is not a nutrient of concern." So, it appears that foods like eggs which are thought to be the cause of cholesterol, are not a cause for concern when it comes to stroke.

Like coffee, the egg has been under scrutiny for years as to whether it is good or bad for your health. Stay tuned!
