Published in the journal Heart, the study looked at more than a half million adults in China. Participants reported on their egg eating habits and the scientists followed-up after nine years on average, comparing egg consumption with disease and death registries.

Specifically, daily egg eaters enjoyed an 11 percent lower risk of heart disease compared to people who didn’t eat any eggs at all. For hemorrhagic stroke (a brain bleed), their risk was up to 26 percent lower. The study concluded that eating up to one egg per day was “significantly associated” with a lower risk of cardiovascular diseases.

As early as 1999, a study on more than 100,000 healthy men and women in JAMA found that eating one egg per day was just fine.
