An egg a day is OK!
Cracking the Cholesterol Myth.
Eating one egg per day does not increase a healthy person's risk of heart disease or stroke,
according to a study funded by the National Institutes of Health. The American Heart Association states “One egg contains about 213 milligrams of dietary cholesterol. The daily recommended cholesterol limit is less than 300 milligrams for people with normal LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. An egg can fit within heart-healthy guidelines for those people only if cholesterol from other sources — such as meats, poultry and dairy products — is limited.”
