Eating just This One Thing Daily; will Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease

A new study published in the journal Heart has found that eating one egg every day;

can significantly reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases.

If you’re worried about heart disease, there’s a lot that you can do to give your cardiovascular health a boost.

Cutting out smoking, even if it’s just one a day, is one of them.

Walking for just 40 minutes several times per week is another (especially for post-menopausal women).

Going to the sauna on a regular basis helps, as does eating the right food.

Now, a new study, published in the journal Heart, has found that eating one egg every day;

can significantly reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases.

While eggs have long been considered a staple in a healthy diet;

they’ve also gotten a bad reputation as of late due to their high cholesterol.

And previous research on the link between heart health and eggs have had relatively small sample sizes.

On the other hand, study, led by Canqing Yu, associate professor at Peking University School of Public Health in Beijing.

Analyzed the results of a whopping 416,213 Chinese adults between the ages of 30, 79 over the course of  9years.

A little over 13% of these participants said they ate an egg every day, while 9% abstained from them altogether.

The results found that the daily egg eaters had a 26% lower risk of hemorrhagic stroke,

a 28% lower risk of dying from this type of stroke,

and a 12% reduced risk of ischemic heart disease.

The study has its drawbacks, most notably that it’s purely observational;

therefore does not control for other factors that might have impacted the heart health of its participants.

Yu herself noted that translating the results to an American audience is complicated;

by the fact that the Chinese have a very different overall diet than ours.

Still, the results suggest that eating one egg a day, or slightly less, is beneficial to a healthy heart,

because they are packed with high-quality protein and other disease-fighting nutrients.

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends eating one a day as well in order to get all of the benefits;

while limiting your daily cholesterol intake to 300 mg.
