For a time, eggs were given a bad rap because of their high cholesterol, but recent studies appear to have exonerated the egg. Research has found the cholesterol in eggs has little effect on blood cholesterol. Also, a recent study followed middle-aged men without dementia for 22 years. They were given cognitive tests and surveys about their diets. There was an association between higher egg consumption and better scores on a number of cognitive function tests. The study also showed no increased risk of dementia for egg eaters. Other research also found that people who ate about 7 eggs a week have a 12% lower risk of stroke than those who ate fewer than 2 eggs per week.
