For the past four decades, the U.S. government has warned that eating cholesterol-rich foods such as eggs would raise your LDL cholesterol (inappropriately referred to as “bad” cholesterol) and promote heart disease. However, decades worth of research utterly failed to demonstrate this correlation, and the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans [1],[2],[3],[4],[5] finally addressed this scientific shortcoming, announcing “cholesterol is not considered a nutrient of concern for overconsumption.” [6]
