An egg a day lowers cardiovascular death by 18%

.
Associations of egg consumption with cardiovascular disease in a cohort study of 0.5 million Chinese adults

Results
At baseline, 13.1% of participants reported daily consumption (usual amount 0.76 egg/day) and 9.1% reported never or very rare consumption (usual amount 0.29 egg/day). Compared with non-consumers, daily egg consumption was associated with lower risk of CVD (HR 0.89, 95% CI 0.87 to 0.92). Corresponding multivariate-adjusted HRs (95% CI) for IHD, MCE, haemorrhagic stroke and ischaemic stroke were 0.88 (0.84 to 0.93), 0.86 (0.76 to 0.97), 0.74 (0.67 to 0.82) and 0.90 (0.85 to 0.95), respectively. There were significant dose-response relationships of egg consumption with morbidity of all CVD endpoints (P for linear trend < 0.05). Daily consumers also had an 18% lower risk of CVD death and a 28% lower risk of haemorrhagic stroke death compared to non-consumers.

Fats don't kill - carbs kill!

.
According to conclusions from the recent study published in The Lancet (thanks JC for the link).

Associations of fats and carbohydrate intake with cardiovascular disease and mortality in 18 countries from five continents (PURE): a prospective cohort study

A decade-long study on 135 thousand participants, examined mortality risk versus macronutrients correlations, based on reported food-questionaires. The findings:

1) Higher carbohydrate intake was associated with 28% increased risk of total mortality (highest quintile 5 vs lowest quintile 1 category).

2) Higher intake of total fat was associated with 23% lower risk of total mortality (quintile 5 vs quintile 1).

3) Total fat and saturated and unsaturated fats were not significantly associated with risk of myocardial infarction or cardiovascular disease mortality.

An extreme, all animal-based diet is gaining followers in search of heightened productivity, mental clarity, and a boosted libido. But experts express doubts

Instagram: shawnbaker1967At 51 years of age I am well aware of the tremendous evidence that demonstrates maintaining as much lean muscle mass as possible is necessary to mitigate the risks of cardiovascular disease and promotes excellent metabolic health-I remain incredibly insulin sensitive with a fasting insulin of just 2.6 and maintain extremely low levels of inflammation with a hsCRPof on 0.6 and also have very low triglycerides levels of only 54- also my VO2max is also among the best in the world for my age based on my rowing capacity- it is the entire system and its overall function that best indicate health!
