The researchers‚ who analysed several studies of egg nutrition‚ said the idea that eating more than three eggs a week is bad for health is a misconception based on out-of-date evidence‚ BBC health reported.
There is cholesterol present in eggs but this does not usually make a great contribution to level of blood cholesterol.
Lead Researcher Professor Bruce Griffin said that eggs are actually a key part of a healthy diet‚ as they were particularly packed full of nutrients.
The amount of saturated fat in our diet exerts an effect on blood cholesterol that is several times greater than the relatively small amounts of dietary cholesterol.
He said that the public do not need to be limiting the number of eggs they eat indeed they can be encouraged to include them in a healthy diet as they are one of nature's most nutritionally dense foods.
While elevated blood cholesterol levels increase the risk of heart disease‚ only around a third of the cholesterol in the body comes from the diet.
Other factors such as smoking‚ being overweight and physical activity can influence blood fat and cholesterol levels and heart disease risk.
The British Heart Foundation said that there is cholesterol present in eggs but this does not usually make a great contribution to level of blood cholesterol.
If one need to reduce cholesterol level it is more important that he cut down on the amount of saturated fat in your diet from foods like fatty meat‚ full fat dairy products and cakes‚ biscuits and pastries.
