Default Eggs are bad again

Middle-aged men who ate seven or more eggs a week had a higher risk of earlier death, U.S. researchers reported on Wednesday.

Men with diabetes who ate any eggs at all raised their risk of death during a 20-year period studied, according to the study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

I will keep eating eggs so when they are "good" again I can laugh and say I told you so.

Aint that the truth. People over analyze things to much. Im guilty of it when it comes to exercise. but as far as I can tell, diet is pretty simple. Be sensible, eat whole foods, eat a lot of plants, dont eat to much (unless your trying to bulk up). Its that simple.

If by "people" you mean me, my post was not intended to be an analysis. I just thought I would share the madness that is nutritional studies. To be fair, however, it is their job to analyze the data. Maybe the experts will decide one day. Doubt it, though.

I just rotate eggs and coffee every week....since they seem to be polar opposites....when eggs are bad, coffee is good....and visa versa....so I am always healthy....

Several things about this study that they are extending to the general "men" category that I have to note, from the article:

Quote:
The Harvard team studied 21,327 men taking part in the much larger Physicians' Health Study, which has been watching doctors since 1981 who have agreed to report regularly on their health and lifestyle habits.
So, this study only deals with MD/DOs, not average men. FWIW. Next:

Quote:
"Egg consumption was not associated with (heart attack) or stroke," the researchers wrote.
But what about all the cholesterol in eggs?!? Is this another dent in the hypothesis?

Quote:
Men who ate the most eggs also were older, fatter, ate more vegetables but less breakfast cereal, and were more likely to drink alcohol, smoke and less likely to exercise — all factors that can affect the risk of heart attack and death.
But let's lay all the blame squarely on 7 eggs or more a week--but if one only eats 6, they'll be okay.

There's also the assumption that they are telling the truth in their dietary recall questionnaires, a shaky method of collecting dietary data at best.

Not on topic but I was reading this thread as I scarfed down my plate of 5 eggs scrambled with veggies and topped with guacomole.
